Heat the oil in a deep casserole, preferably earthenware, and brown the rabbit on all sides. Add the vinegar, onion, salt, pepper, bay leaf, and garlic. Cover tightly and cook in the oven at 300-325 F for 2 h, uncover for the last 15 min. Most of the liquid should be evaporated. If it evaporates too quickly, add a little water.

Dress the arugula with 3 tsp olive oil, lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste.

Serve the rabbit over the arugula.
