Orange Arugula Salad (with Shallot Vinaigrette)

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

It’s beginning to look a lot like summer in Jersey! And with that comes picnics and other outdoor events (note: “events” often = dinner outside with my parents I am so #popular) Anyway, these aforementioned events often call for something green and healthy. Therefore I give you this salad! It’s is so simple, fresh, and delicious. The sweet oranges go perfectly with the peppery arugula and crunchy almonds. I may or may not have eaten the whole bowl of the pictured finished product. I dare you not to do the same.



2 bunches arugula, washed and torn

1/2 c. slivered almonds

1 large orange (or 3 clementines)

Slice the orange and add all ingredients to a large bowl.



1/4 c. balsamic vinegar

2 tsp. dijon mustard

1 shallot, mined

2/3 c. olive oil

salt and pepper

Add all ingredients to a mason jar and shake well. Pour over salad and toss!
