I’m not necessarily into picking favorites, but if I had to (had to) narrow down my list of cheese faves, parmesan would most definitely fall somewhere near the top of the list.  Add in some arugula and some pretty, pretty place settings and, friends, this is what we call a Thanksgiving salad masterpiece.  Yum. My.
