Arugula Salad with Fresh Veggies & Walnuts


I love the zesty and slightly peppery taste of fresh arugula. This salad, made with fresh veggies and diced walnuts, is so crunchy and extremely satisfying. At our house, we enjoy it for lunch and dinner. If I’m not very hungry, I’ll have it with a a bit of pita and hummus. It also goes great as a side with grilled fish, chicken or meat or even a dollop of egg salad or tuna salad!
