This is absolutely delicious. The nutty parmesan is a nice balance with the peppery arugula and sweet raisins. The second time I made it I substituted dried cranberries for the golden raisins. My husband and I preferred the cranberries more then the raisins but that's our personal taste preference.

I made this exactly as written, and it was a hit at my Easter get-together. The sweet raisins did indeed nicely balance the bite-y arugula. Even my children ate it, sans dressing.
