Roasted Potato Arugula Salad with Tuna

Sometimes my afternoon consists of nothing much other than preparing a meal, and perhaps snapping a photo of it. Sounds simple, yes, but the pickings of the perfect ingredients, the tastings and the recording of the recipe is more than that. I think, what else can I add? What would heighten these flavors? Perhaps, one ingredient is not a good fit, and I try again. And again. Today was not a day like that. Today, I added all the ingredients on my board to my salad bowl, I drizzled with the simple dressing, and I sat down for lunch. And it was spectacular. What a mixture of flavors this salad was. Peppery arugula, something I can not live without. Potatoes baked to perfection and fresh crisp purple onion. I'm happy to be able to share a recipe like this with you, as I know it will not disappoint. Enjoy.
