    This is a great salad and is so simple to make. And just in time for summer when the farmer's market is in full swing! I used normal tomatoes because I didn't have cherry tomatoes on hand and used toasted the pine nuts to bring out the flavor. I also added cranberries, which I think are a must. The sweetness compliments with the spicy/bitter arugula. My one last suggestion to let this salad sit for a few minutes. It tastes better that way. This is a keeper. I'll definitely make it again.  -  22 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I like this with the Parmesan not grated but cut into thin slices. If you like Arugula, you'll like this salad. I substituted a normal vinegar instead of the rice vinegar and it still tasted yummy.  -  31 May 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
