Simple Arugula Salad

What you'll need:

Handful of nuts or seeds of choice

(I used pine nuts but walnuts, pecans, pumpkin or sunflower seeds are great too!)


1 tsp dijon mustard

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Juice of 1/2 lemon

1 tsp honey or maple syrup

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 big handful of arugula for each person you're serving

Shaved parmesan, to serve


In a small dry frying pan over medium heat toast your nuts or seeds just until fragrant or starting to turn golden brown. Immediately transfer for a plate & set aside.

In a jar or container with a lid, combine 1 tsp dijon mustard, 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, juice of 1/2 lemon, 1 tsp honey or maple syrup & 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil. Secure with a shake until emulsified.

Place arugula in a large bowl, lightly dress with dressing and toss to coat. Finish with toasted nuts or seeds & shaved parmesan.

Store leftover dressing covered in the fridge for up to 1 week.

Eat well my friends!
