Chef's Note

For a light meal, add a sliced or crumbled hard boiled egg.        

Never cut the greens with a knife: tear them by hand.                

If you wish to make the dressing in advance, add a spoonful of water to keep it from separating.

For 4 servings

- Arugula or other salad greens as desired
- 4 slices of bacon (optional)
- 4-8 tbsp. pine nuts16-20 shavings of parmesan

- 125 ml (1/2 cup) extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 tbsp. honey
- 4 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 clove of garlic, minced

  2. Cut the bacon into small pieces; sauté gently in a skillet until crispy; drain.
