I could eat arugula everyday.
Actually, I practically do.
In the summer, when I don't feel like cooking as much
an arugula salad can make a great lunch...or dinner!
After playing around with many different combinations, I have come up with my 3 favorites. (in no particular order)...
Arugula, mango, avocado and goat cheese sprinkled with sliced almonds. Splash on some olive oil and lime juice to make it a refreshing summer salad! This salad also uses some ingredients from my favorite Mango Avocado Salsa. Just make sure you use a ripe mango because the mango is really the star of this one!
Arugula with dried cranberries, feta cheese, walnuts and olive oil.
And if you want more of an Italian spin...
You can't go wrong with Arugula, tomatoes, shaved Parmesan Cheese, toasted pine nuts with lemon and olive oil. I am not a huge fan of dressings, but my husband likes it with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
If you want to turn any of these salads into more of a main course, you can add grilled chicken or shrimp.
You might have noticed I didn't give measurements for any of the ingredients. Just cut up the amount you like and throw it in!It's summer - get out of the kitchen and enjoy!
What do you like in your arugula salad?
