Quick And Light Bresaola Over Arugula

With most salads, there are so many competing flavors, and so much stuff shoved into one bowl. Why all the fuss? You wouldn’t wear hoop earrings with a big chunky necklace? I decided a minimalist approach could be the solution to my easy salad. Starting with arugula, a nutrient-rich bitter green packed with vitamin E, beta carotene, and dietary fiber, I devised this Bresaola Over Arugula salad that’s worthy of an entrée billing.
