Arugula Salad with Shaved Parmesan

As a mother of two young boys ages 3 and 5, one thing I am very passionate about is getting them in the kitchen as much as possible. Not only do I believe that encouraging kids to cook will help set the foundation for healthy eating habits but it’s a great way to teach them life skills.

Jacob kept eating the shaved parmesan so I had to use some leftover shredded parmesan I had on hand in the refrigerator. Life with boys, right?

Of course, this salad is delicious on its own but we love serving it with grilled chicken in the summer months or even as a replacement for pasta with heartier dishes like eggplant parmesan.

  1. Remy LOVES being in the kitchen with me, the only problem is she wants to DO way more than she is currently capable of lol (which is basically just watching). I can’t wait until she can actually help! And I love a good simple salad. Those parmesan shavings are such a salad highlight.
