Eating the same old salad over and over gets real boring, real quick.  Switch it up with this arugula Parmesan salad recipe that literally only takes five minutes to make.  You’ll love how fresh the arugula tastes with the lemon-parmesan dressing.  The lemon brings out the full, leafy flavor of the arugula and the Parmesan gives it a savory kick.  Final step? Screw the croutons and add some color! We topped this salad with some crisp cherry tomatoes. Not only does it make it taste better, but it looks pretty damn good too.

Total Time: 5 minutes

Servings: 3

Ingredients:
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1. Mix olive oil, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice, and salt and pepper in a small bowl.

2. Combine arugula and tomatoes in a large bowl.
