Lemon juice combines with mild rice vinegar in a dressing that's both sprightly and slightly sweet to dress young, tender lettuces.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • Place arugula in a bowl and drizzle dressing over greens; toss to coat.

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.

Simple to make with outstanding flavor. This is a perfect side salad to a grilled steak to serve with a frittata for brunch or even to top a thin crust prosciutto pizza. My favorite way to eat arugula salad is with a simple dressing and no additional toppings. The arugula is flavorful enough to stand alone. Do yourself a favor and make it exactly as written using arugula. Impressive and tasty! Read More

I'm not a big fan of arugula so I just made my usual salad and mixed up this dressing to go on top...WOW it's FANTASTIC! LOVED the simple ingredients in this the fact that it doesn't make a TON and most importantly the flavor which is sooooo good (I could've drank it lol)! Made exactly as written and would not change a thing...perfect proportion of flavors...a definite keeper YUM!!!!! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

I really liked this dressing. We made a salad with what we like with butter lettuce and ridichio. I was not familiar with shallots and I liked the way they flavored the dressing without being over-powering like raw onion or garlic. My only changes to dressing were using a different oil not having olive oil. Also believe I used white wine vinegar instead of rice. Unfamiliar with shallots I just minced about 2 tsp. When done I also added a sprinkle of garlic salt. Already planning this dressing again. Read More

Very easy and tasty dressing for arugula. I didn't have shallots so I substituted minced red onion. I wanted to add a sweet fruit to balance the arugula so I tossed in a couple segmented Cuties which added a nice sweetness and color. Read More

Have a lot of arugula growing in my garden. The honey mustard vinaigrette goes perfectly with it. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Read More

Was a bit worried about using all arugula because of it being so peppery sometimes so bought baby arugula and the salad was AWESOME! The dressing complimented the greens beautifully and how simple this was. Dressing really made the salad - will use it with many other kinds of greens as well! Read More

Great dressing--subbed a champagne shallot mustard for the dijon as it was what I had on hand. Used the dressing on spring lettuce from the garden at Easter and Mother's Day dinners. Whole family really liked. It is a light dressing that allows the flavor of the lettuce to shine through. Will definitely be making again. Read More
