Terrific Green Salads
Combine the oil, vinegar, chopped basil, salt and pepper. Toss 1 tablespoon of the dressing with the tomatoes. In a skillet, cook the bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels.
Toss the arugula with the remaining dressing and arrange on 4 large plates. Scatter the bacon and potatoes over the arugula and sprinkle the onion and blue cheese on top. Scatter the marinated tomatoes and basil leaves over the salad and serve.
Salty bacon, peppery greens, pungent blue cheese—the best match is a crisp Sauvignon Blanc from California.
