This simple salad is an excellent reminder that salad is not a boring endeavor, nor does it need cheese, avocado and nuts to be brilliant.
fun fact: often I will make peach recipes with nectarines . Why ? nectarine’s punchy flavor is favored by most even though they intellectually love peaches. Peaches really win either eaten whole and fresh (juice down your chin) or poached with furry skin removed.
1 cup mint leaves
2 T thyme olive oil (or add a pinch of thyme/ rosemary to your mint if using extra virgin olive oil)

3 cups arugula
