Rocket Salad

Dressing

In a small glass of whiskey (very handy) add two tablespoons of oil, and slightly less than 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar! Then put half a teaspoon of mustard and finally spoon on his nose, little honey! Kakomoirides my kolouthiste precisely this analogy! Then stir fierce! But too! For this one needs, neither too tight nor too tall or too short glass! The sauce is ready!
Try it in salads, cooked over sweet cheese (mastelo Hugh, Halloumi Cyprus) with a little sesame.


Process

Wash the arugula, drain it and cut it into small pieces (to facilitate the mixing then) unless it is washed and packed! The rocket should not be old, because the leaves become tough and bitter aggravating! Also avoid the rocket that is poorly developed and consists mainly of twigs and leaves, not because they have no substance! Wash and cut into 4, 3 tomatoes and put them together with the arugula in a bowl. Add a little Parmesan cheese, cut into very thin slices (divine material), or in any case a salty cheese and will not even need salt! Do not pour the sauce over it only when it's time to eat, because the sauce to alter, if left too long on it! Stir, too furious!
