Warm Bean & Arugula Salad

Warm Bean & Arugula Salad

In this salad, saucy, lemony beans stand in for a warm dressing, coating the arugula and wilting it just a bit to mellow its naturally assertive character. Add a piece of warm crusty bread and a glass of crisp white wine to make this an excellent light supper.

Serves 6

Prep Time 35 min

Total Time 35 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 ounce prosciutto, thinly sliced, cut into strips
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium red onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 15-ounce c white beans, rinsed
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 8 cups arugula

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Cook prosciutto in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently, until crispy, about 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

Step 2

Add oil to the pan and place over medium-low heat. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, being careful not to brown the garlic, 3 to 5 minutes.
