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.

Hey, their future wives will thank me, right? One dish my kids love helping me with is putting together a quick salad.

This easy arugula salad recipe is made with just five simple ingredients including olive oil, lemon juice and shaved parmesan.

Jacob and Mommy Cooking

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.

However you decide to serve it, grab the kiddos or enlist help from friends. After all, cooking is always more fun when done with those you love.

Your fork is waiting.

    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.
