Paleo Recipes for Modern Day Cavemen

Warm Arugula and Bacon Salad

My friend Luki made this dish at a party a few months ago and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. So I thought to share it in case you guys needed ideas to bring to a paleo party. It was a huge hit at a family bbq I went to last weekend. Who doesn’t like bacon!? Crazy people I say…

Makes 6-8 servings
20 oz arugula
7 strips Berkshire bacon (my FAVORITE brand of bacon – no preservatives or nitrates)
5 shallots (finely chopped)
1/3 cup olive oil 
freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup pine nuts

Chop your bacon into penny-sized bits. In a large pan, add the bacon and chopped shallots. Stir frequently until the bacon is fully cooked and slightly crispy.  Add the arugula and olive oil to the pan and stir to help the arugula wilt.  After 3-5 minutes of stirring, your arugula should be completely wilted. Add in some fresh ground pepper and a handful of pine nuts for added texture. Best served immediately (this goes great with the onion tart and makes a fantastic brunch).  Enjoy!
