“This is a salad with a "bite" to it. Arugula leaves have a slight sesame taste and also has a bite to them. They really make the salad taste good. Of course you may use any kind of lettuce or salad greens, but the Arugula leaves really make the difference in this salad. Prep time includes making the salad dressing and refrigerating it.”
