Arugula with Grilled Portabella and Blue Cheese
The title is the recipe.
Arugula (or rocket/roquette) is by far my favorite salad green. Sturdy, bitter, nutty. Yummy.
Portabellas (or portobellos) are one of my favorite mushrooms. Meaty, substantial, flavorful.
Blue cheese. Tangy, salty, creamy. Love. Any cheese for that matter.
Balsamic reduction brings all these together. Sweet, sour, smoky.
This is what makes a great salad...different flavors, different textures, all combining into one perfect mouthful.
