This arugula salad recipe is simple yet entirely delicious. We love whipping up this salad as a go-to for a variety of dishes, as it works well as an appetizer or side dish to many different entrées.
For a healthy dinner, we often whip up this arugula salad recipe with a piece of baked salmon. The salad comes together in less than 10 minutes and contains a delightful mix of baby greens and peppery arugula.
Our favorite toppings for this arugula salad include freshly grated parmesan, cherry tomatoes, and pine nuts, but you can use whatever toppings you like.
In general, the mix of baby greens and arugula are a pleasant combination and make a great base for any mix of toppings. The arugula has a peppery quality to it, while the baby greens have a slight sweetness that pairs well with the sweet balsamic vinaigrette.
The vinaigrette we’ve shared here is easy to whisk together and, most importantly, healthy. Feel free to substitute the cane juice in the dressing with orange juice or apple juice if that’s what you have on hand.
