Arugula Blackberry Salad brings all the fresh ingredients in spring into one salad. Arugula, blackberries, and a bright vinaigrette.
Arugula is not only delicious, it is one of the healthiest leaves to consume. This green is a great source of folic acid and vitamins A, C and K. If you’re trying to watch what you eat and would like to get a more vegetable based iron in your diet, arugula is definitely a great option for you.
No matter what are your reasons for eating it, arugula is a fantastic food to add to your diet. I love eating arugula salad because this dark green leaf goes really well with almost everything you want to add in your salad; things like blue cheese or feta cheese, nuts and also berries. But as arugula is a very versatile green, you shouldn’t limit yourself to salads. Try adding it to pastas, grains, sandwiches, wraps, soups, or blend it into a delicious smoothie!
I am not the type of person who adds lots of ingredients in my salads, but this time I added more than five, just because I had all those ingredients in my fridge and pantry. If you don’t have all these ingredients you can substitute some of them for something else, or you can simply omit some. Why not, right? This is the beauty of making salads: Simple, easy and practical.
This salad is topped with this simple, fresh and perfect homemade vinaigrette that you can make with only olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. It is very flavorful and quick to make.
I suggest you to make this vinaigrette ahead of time, put away in a salad dressing bottle and you can keep in your fridge for up 4 days. I think it is great because you will save your time in the kitchen and have more time to enjoy your meal with your family. Also, when you have your salad dressing ready you will be less tempted to use the store brand.
I hope you give this arugula blackberry salad a try, because it is heavenly!
