  1. Combine shallot, honey, mustard, and salt in a jar with a lid; add olive oil, lemon juice, and vinegar. Cover jar with lid and shake until dressing is thickened.
  2. Place arugula in a bowl and drizzle dressing over greens; toss to coat.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can make a larger batch of dressing by simply doubling or tripling the amounts and store it in the fridge for a week or two. This dressing can also do double duty as a marinade for chicken or thick, firm-fleshed fish.
  • Any variety of spring lettuce such as Bibb or red leaf can replace the arugula.
