1/4 cup aged balsamic vinegar1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice

1/2 Tbs. red wine vinegar

1/2 Tbs. water

1 tsp. Dijon mustard

1/4 cup olive oil


4 oz. organic wild arugula

1 head escarole, green edges cut off and white heart sliced crosswise into one-inch pieces

3 oz. raw-milk Manchego, shaved into thin strips

2 Tbs. toasted pine nuts

  1. To Make Dressing: Combine first five ingredients in jar, and shake to combine. Add olive oil, and shake to blend.
  2. To Make Salad: Combine arugula, escarole, and Manchego in large bowl. Drizzle half of dressing mixture over greens, just enough to moisten lightly, and toss gently. (Refrigerate remaining dressing for another use.) Divide among six plates, and sprinkle with pine nuts.
