1 bunch arugula balsamic or cider vinegar
1 leek, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced
handful of walnuts, toasted
1 apple, cored and sliced
cheese, optional Wash and dry the arugula. Put it into a salad bowl. Heat olive oil in a skillet, and add leeks and a pinch of salt. Sautee for a few minutes, and add the apple slices. Saute a minute more, and then add enough vinegar just to cover the apples. Lower the heat, allowing the apples to absorb the vinegar, and for the rest to reduce a bit. While still hot, pour the apple mixture over the arugula. Add the nuts, and cheese if desired. Finish off with a touch of walnut oil, and salt and pepper. A salty or pungent cheese can be added if desired.
