Arugula and Roasted Potato Salad with Warm Pancetta Vinaigrette

I could eat this salad any time of day. The flavors of the peppery arugula, sweet sundried tomatoes and salty pancetta compliment one another perfectly. And the creamy hard boiled egg and crunchy roasted potatoes add great texture. 

Serve this with crusty bread and butter and a glass of crisp, cold white wine. Cheers!





1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place diced potatoes on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Roast for 25 minutes.


2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add pancetta, shallot and garlic and cook until the fat has rendered from the pancetta, about 4 minutes. Add the vinegar, sundried tomatoes, sugar and Dijon and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper and turn heat to low.





3. Place arugula in serving bowls and top with potatoes and egg. Spoon the warm vinaigrette over and garnish with chives.
