fresh arugula salad


fresh organic raw vegan arugula green saladfresh lemon arugula salad is a healthy, raw, vegan, wheat and gluten free k.i.s.s. (keep it simple salad) recipe that plays with the taste buds. often people are leery of the arugula and its bold flavor. it’s not called the salad rocket for nothing! i’m a huge fan of arugula and use it in many rawcipes.

my good friend kari,, recently introduced me to joanna,, another talented local artist during a studio sale at the university. with so many beautiful pieces to choose from it was a difficult decision but i went with the bowl in the picture above and i love it! check out joanna’s work and pick up a great piece to hold your very own fresh arugula salad.

mix everything in a bowl and serve. serves 1-2.

    I love arugula and have it often. I once had some from a neighbors garden and it was too strong for me. It is interesting how store bought isn’t as spicy!

    • Jessica says:

      i’ve noticed that when i find it at the farmers market and i believe it’s because the store bought is baby arugula and your neighbors was most likely a more mature plant. if you add a healthy fat based dressing, like a creamy avocado to your neighbors arugula, it might help the spice for you (:

    Arugula is one of my favorite leafy greens. The flavor is so amazing and goes so well with so many different vinaigrettes.

    Arugula is such a flavorful leafy green, but it’s so underutilized. This salad sounds so delicious. I love the simplicity. It would be perfect for a quick snack or light lunch.
