Arugula-Radish Salad

May 22, 20231 min read

Arugula-Radish Salad:

Leafy greens are one of my “not-so-secret” secret weapons! Arugula is possibly my favorite bitter green, but there is such a variety of leafy greens to choose from such as Swiss chard, kale, watercress, spinach, bok choy, cabbage, and more!

Here’s an impressive list of known benefits of consuming leafy greens:

• improves mood

• improves energy

• reduces the effects of stress

• boosts performance levels

• aids weight loss

• rich in minerals such as calcium and iron to keep us strong

• good B vitamins that are key for our mental health

• fiber to naturally detoxify our bodies

• rich in antioxidant vitamins and phytochemicals that keep our immune systems firing

There are lots of ways to prepare leafy greens besides a salad.  You can sauté, stir-fry, blanch, grill, bake, blend or eat them raw. 

Ingredients:

• 1 bunch of radishes

• 5 oz pkg baby arugula

• 4 tsp extra virgin olive oil

• 2 tsp white wine vinegar

• 1 tsp Dijon mustard

• 1/4 tsp sea salt

• 1/8 tsp black pepper

Directions:

1. Place oil, vinegar, Dijon, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl; whisk to combine the dressing.

2. Trim and thinly slice radishes; add to the bowl with the dressing and let marinate for 30 minutes if time allows.

3. Right before serving, add arugula to the bowl with the dressing and radish; toss to combine the salad.
