Great presentation! Salad is quick and easy to make, and great to eat! This was given to me by my best-friend, Judy this is one of her favorites.

I've made this twice already this week. My family totally digs it! The dressing was simple and delicious. All of the ingredients, except for the cheese was on hand. I hurried to the store to get the cheese and it was totally worth the trip!
Delicious Combination! I absolutely love arugula, first time to try $$$ manchego! Worth the $$$! I served the dressing on the side instead of tossing it all together.....didn't want to drench any leftovers!!! Made for Best of 2010 tag!
We love salads, we love arugula and we really love manchego! What a combination! Next time we'll test 'Murcia/drunken goat' for fun. Thanks for posting!
