Simply Delicious Arugula Salad with Fried Egg

  • Print


One of my favorite go-to dinners is a yummy salad with a protein added, typically tilapia or chicken breast. My mom makes delicious salads with arugula, and I try to replicate them at home as much as I can. Little things, like a good olive oil and toasting pine nuts in a skillet, give the salad something extra special.

The other night, I decided to try something different in lieu of chicken: a fried egg. I've seen salads posted on Pinterest and Instagam with this delightful addition, and it seemed worth a try. I love making eggs for dinner at home, whether it's overeasy eggs and sausage or fried egg breakfast sandwiches. 

Here's the super easy recipe.

Simply Delicious Arugula Salad with Fried Egg


  • Fresh arugula
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Pine nuts
  • White wine vinegar
  • Olive Oil
  • Egg
  • Non-stick cooking spray



  1. Place two skillet pans over medium heat, one sprayed with non-stick spray for the fried egg. Put desired amount of pine nuts in the unsprayed skillet, watching that both sides toast evenly. Break egg into sprayed skillet. 
  2. While egg is cooking, place arugula and parmesan in salad bowl. Add equal parts white wine vinegar and olive oil, about a tablespoon each, and toss salad.
  3. When egg is cooked on one side, flip over with spatula. 
  4. Add toasted pine nuts to salad mixture and give one more toss. Put salad in dish. 
  5. When egg is cooked through, slide out of skillet onto the top of the salad. 
  6. Enjoy!


The recipes I've seen online with this type of salad also include bacon or pancetta. I think that could add another yummy layer to this salad, but for something on the fly, this is a yummy, sophisticated, and easy meal!
