Arugula Salad with Almonds and Parmesan

I don't know if I mentioned this before or not BUT arugula is one of my favorite greens. I came across this recipe while reading a recent edition of  Everyday Food. This simple salad is perfect for a light meal or a great start to a larger meal. Although there's not much in this salad, it still has so much flavor and is actually quite filling! Grilled Chicken would be a great addition.

1/3 cup toasted natural almonds
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 bunch arugula (1/2 pound), trimmed
1/3 cup shaved Parmesan (1 ounce), plus more for serving

In a large bowl, combine almonds, oil, lemon juice, and vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Add arugula and Parmesan and toss to coat. Serve topped with more Parmesan.
