Finally I have harvested something to eat from The Balcony Garden!
I wish you had “taste – O – vision” because this truly was just divine!
I gently trimmed the supple leaves from their base, gave them a quick wash just to remove any “bug spit” then on to the plate!
I whipped up the perfect little dressing that consisted of:
- 1 clove of fresh garlic finely minced
- the juice and zest of one lemon
- olive oil x twice the juice
- salt & pepper
Whisk that up and lovingly spoon and drizzle over the precious arugula.
Then add a few shavings of some good quality parmesan cheese.
Heavenly I tell you! Just heavenly!
he young fresh arugulas are almost sweet, not even a hint of what can usually be a bit of a bitter bite! Say THAT three times quickly!
