Arugula Salad with Creamy Garlic Dressing

Active Time: 15 minutes   |   Total Time: 15 minutes   |   Serves Serve 2 to 4

  • 2 cups torn French bread
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (2 T. + 1 T.)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 3 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 cups baby arugula

Heat the oven (with the oven rack in the middle) to 375°.

For the croutons, tear a piece of French bread into bite-size pieces to get about 2 cups worth. Place onto a sheet pan and drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the oil. Toss well. Bake until golden brown and crispy, 8 to 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine the Parmesan, garlic, buttermilk, salt, pepper (about 6 turns on pepper mill), and the remaining 1 tablespoon of the oil. Pulse several times until blended and creamy.

Put the arugula into a salad spinner. Wash and spin dry. Transfer to a salad bowl and toss with the dressing and croutons. Serve sprinkled with a little more Parmesan.
