We were eating dinner at urbn coal fired pizza when I had this salad for the first time. It is so light and refreshing and is the easiest thing to throw together. I would always avoid arugula because of its somewhat bitter and peppery flavor. As soon as I tried it with a citrus vinaigrette, I was hooked.  Goes great with pizza, or just about anything else you could imagine. This is my new go-to salad.
