Olive and Arugula Flatbread Pizza Salad

START TO FINISH: 25 minutes MAKES 4 servings

2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon red wine vinegar

1⁄4 teaspoon salt

1⁄8 teaspoon cracked black pepper

2 cups baby arugula leaves

1 14×12-inch Italian flatbread (focaccia) or one 12-inch thin Italian bread shell

2 teaspoons olive oil

1⁄4 cup olive pesto or tapenade

6 pimiento-stuffed green olives, sliced

1⁄4 cup shaved Parmesan cheese (1 ounce)*

1 For dressing, in a screw-top jar combine 2 to 3 tablespoons oil, lemon juice, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Cover and shake well. Place arugula in a medium bowl. Shake dressing again; drizzle over arugula, tossing gently to coat.

2 Brush flatbread with 2 teaspoons oil. For a charcoal grill, grill flatbread on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 1 to 2 minutes or just until golden brown, turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place flatbread on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)

3 Spread flatbread with pesto. Top with dressed arugula, olives, and cheese.
