Arugula Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette

Arugula Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette


"Arugula is a delicious alternative to lettuce, and the citrus juice dressing is a delicious alternative to heavier store bought dressings. A lovely precursor to most meals, or a great stand-alone in the summer. Garnish with walnuts or sunflower seeds, if you like."

This was alright but the dressing was just too light. I think it would be fine with something a bit heartier.

This is the best salad I have ever had! I used all grapefruit juice since I was out of oranges and added sunflower seeds, as another poster suggested. Who knew something so simple could be so ...

I just love arugula Jeanette and eat it at least three times a week. You're so right, this light citrus dressing complimented the spicey flavor of the arugula so nicely. Thanks for a great lunch...
