Summer is upon us, at least here is Texas. That means the grills and pits are primed for another season of mostly meaty delights. As you might have gathered from previous post I adore slow smoked meats and and seared cuts off the grill in a big way. Oh sure, we might throw on some corn or peppers on the grill to go with the meat fest but so often the vegetables get ignored once the grill is lit. I have been as guilty as any but I now have two sister-in-laws that are (Gasp!) Vegetarians. So I better change my ways if I know what’s good for me!
I have recently been enamored with Arugula. I had a spectacular salad of Baby Arugula, Goat Cheese, and Spiced Pecans at the Belmont. Since then Arugula has been high on my list of greens with it’s peppery bite and delicate texture. So next time I have the sister-in-laws over for dinner I think I’ll try this great looking recipe from Epicurious’ grill guide, Bruschetta with Arugula, Smoked Mozzarella and Tomatoes.
