Serves 6 small portions, can be doubled
This summer salad includes spicy arugula lettuce and sweet peaches and salty pistachios. It is an interesting flavor combination that really works well on a warm day. The dressing includes a jalapeno pepper, which is spicy and can be omitted.
1 large shallot, thinly sliced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeds and membrane removed, thinly sliced (optional but really good in it)
1/2 teaspoon sugar
2-1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper
3 under ripe medium peaches, very thinly sliced
1 small jicama (about 8 ounces), peeled and cut into 1/8-inch-thick matchsticks
3/4 cup shelled, salted pistachios, coarsely chopped
3 cups baby arugula
In a large bowl, combine the shallot, jalapeno, sugar and vinegar and let stand for 5 minutes. Whisk in the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Add the peaches, jicama and pistachios and toss well. Fold in the arugula and season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
