  • Preheat the broiler. In a large bowl, toss the arugula with the olive oil. Transfer to a large ovenproof platter. Cut the potatoes in half and arrange on the arugula in a single layer. Top with the Taleggio cheese and season with salt and pepper. Broil for about 1 minute, or until the cheese melts, and serve.
