  • 3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (juice from one lemon)
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed, fresh whole basil leaves

  1. In a large bowl toss arugula, tuna, beans, tomatoes and onion.
  2. In a small bowl whisk garlic, rosemary, salt, pepper, oil, and lemon juice to blend.

• Chiffonade is a simple technique in which the leaves of a soft herb are
stacked, rolled, and sliced thin. It is a great way to cut delicate herbs
without bruising and it looks beautiful!
