Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a small jar or bowl, combine lemon zest and juice with olive oil, coarse salt, and ground pepper; shake or whisk to combine.

  • Wash arugula and remove stems; place leaves in a large bowl. With a vegetable peeler, shave Parmesan cheese over arugula; toss with dressing. Garnish with more grated zest, if desired.

Cook's Notes

To mince the zest, use a vegetable peeler to remove lemon zest in long strips (avoid bitter white pith). Use a sharp knife to cut zest into thinner strips, then finely cut crosswise.
