healthy eating – arugula salad recipe

I actually got tired of eating the same leaves day in and day out, so one day while shopping at my favorite grocery store,  I decided to bring home a box of freshy cut and washed arugula to test out.

Although I have had them many times in restaurants, I never considered consuming them at home. Don’t ask. Anyway, I brought them home and decided to experiment and to my surprise I was able to create a great tasting salad from a recipe I found here and now arugula has become my choice of leaves.

Ingredients:

6 cups arugula leaves
1 mango, peeled and cut into long slices
1 avocado, peeled and sliced
½ red onion, sliced
1 tbs lime juice
Spicy orange vinaigrette
1 tbs champagne vinegar
4 tbs orange juice, about ½ orange
2 tbs lime juice, about ½ lime
4 tbs olive oil
½ tsp cumin
2 tbs finely chopped cilantro
1 red chili or hot pepper, sliced
Salt and pepper

Preparation:

  1. Combine all the ingredients for the salad dressing in a jar, close it tight and shake until the ingredients are well mixed.
  2. Soak the onion slices in warm water with a dash of salt and 1 tbs lime juice for about 10 minutes.
  3. Rinse and drain the onions slices.
  4. Toss the arugula leaves with half of the vinaigrette.
  5. Add the avocado slices, mango slices and onion slices to the arugula mix, drizzle the remaining vinaigrette on top.
  6. Serve immediately.

Let me know what you think?
