Arugula and Basil Salad

Just tried this from the LCBO Food and Drink Magazine for summer. Simple and very tasty…

Arugula & Basil Salad with Nectarine

Dressing
Juice and zest of one lime
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1/2 tsp. Sesame oil
1/4 cup salad oil (not olive)
Salt and pepper

Salad
8 cups baby arugula
2 ripe nectarines cut into thin wedges
1 cup loosely packed basil leaves in thin strips
2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds

Prepare dressing and let stand. Add arugula and basil. Toss with the toasted sesame seeds and nectarines.

You could likely substitute firm peaches OR mango.
