Fresh Arugula Romano Salad

 

Sometimes you just need a light, no fussing kind of side dish to go with a heavier meal. This is the perfect salad if you are having a pasta dish or even pizza. One cup of this yumminess will even provide you with 7 grams of protein!

Often salads are made with romaine, Boston, iceberg or spinach but once in awhile you need a chance from the typical to the extraordinary and arugula is the green leaf for you!

 

 

You might remember recently my Grilled Arugula Parmesan Romano Pizza post in which I shared all about the healthy benefits of eating arugula. Lots of folic acid, potassium, iron and vitamins in this fab edible plant.

This salad is perfectly pretty to serve for any girls night “in” with some other yummy appetizers like my Chicken Salad Cucumber Bites and Mini Zucchini Cheese bites or Mini Quinoa Zucchini Cheese Bites!

  1. I could eat bowl after bowl of this. I have been hooked on arugula all summer. Love the simplicity of this salad. Perfect!

  2. I am going to have to try this recipe! I love a simple plate of arugula with a sprinkling of pepper and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. It is absolutely delish!
