Arugula Salad with a Twist

1 Bag/Head of Arugula. The quantity is your preference. For example 2 cups (not compressed) is a small quantity.
Asiago Cheese or Parmeggiano
Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinegar
Dried Figs cut in half (optional)

Wash your arugula and let sit so that the water drains. (you can pat it dry as well and set aside)
Shave some slices of Asiago cheese with a cheese shredder or you can use parmeggiano.
In a large bowl put your washed arugula add some Olive oil and well aged Balsamic vinegar and salt to taste add your shavings of cheese and some figs if you like. It's a simple salad that tastes great!
Tip: As you can see I said well aged Balsamic vinegar because it more sweet and this is a nice contrast to the bitterness of the arugula. The figs also adds more sweet to this salad, but it's totally up to you if you like this taste in your salad. My second tip is, if you do finer shavings of your cheese it adds a nicer presentation to this dish.
