I have an unnatural obsession with organic arugula. Wait, since it’s organic, does that make it a natural obsession? Maybe? I don’t know. Regardless, for me, there is nothing as delicious and fresh as this peppery, leafy green.

Spring Greens Arugula Salad
Add beets, orange wedges and sesame seeds for a filling and festive spring salad.


Now, because I consider myself a caring and sharing person, I’m going to share with you the most perfect arugula salad recipe ever. And it’s totally multipurpose! You can devour this as a meal, throwing in pine nuts, garbanzo beans and beets, for a light and nutritious lunch. Or, you can leave it in its simplest form (just the arugula and balsamic) and enjoy this abundance of spring greens in even more delicious ways, like putting it in sandwiches, on top of pizza, or topping it with a salmon fillet. Arugula is a great source of potassium, calcium, and vitamin K, so you have even more reason to enjoy these delicious spring flavors.
