8 oz. White mushrooms, thinly sliced                 salt and freshly milled black pepper

6 TBSP extra virgin olive oil                              1- 6 oz. Piece Parmesan cheese, at room temp.

Coarsely chop the Arugula.  Combine the chopped Arugula and sliced mushrooms in a large bowl.  Whisk together the oil, vinegar, and mustard.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Drizzle the mixture over the salad and toss to coat well.  Shave thin strips of the cheese with a cheese shaver or vegetable peeler.
