For some reason an apple and arugula salad recently popped into my head. I decided to go with it and was so glad that I did, the peppery greens worked so well with the crunchy tart apple and the honey mustard-like dressing. It would be the perfect addition to some chicken thighs or salmon filets.

Arugula & Apple Salad - 4 servings

  • 1 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp agave or honey
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 granny smith apple, thinly sliced
  • 6 cups arugula

Whisk dressing ingredients together and toss with arugula and apple slices.

*Tip: after tossing everything together, stuff 1 portion of greens in a mug or cup and invert on plate for a fancier presentation.

    When I lived in London, I really tried to save $$, so instead of eating out, I’d buy a bag of arugula and this awesome lemony dressing and have that for lunch almost every day. It’s still a flavor memory that I love.

    wow, this looks delightfully refreshing and crispy! I’d just sprinkle some candied nuts and goat cheese on top! :-)
