Clementine Arugula Salad Recipe

Clementine Arugula Salad is so good, you'll want to eat it every day. Fabulous!

This salad is a huge hit in my home with my husband and me during the wintertime because it is very easy to make and tastes delicious. Also, I have to say that it is the best time of the year to add a wonderful, sweet and juicy clementine in your meals because it tastes even better now.

Well, we actually love citrus fruits like oranges and tangerines, but last weekend while we were doing groceries we saw these clementines and we couldn’t resist buying them. We bought a box and in three days we almost didn’t have one left.

Why? They are VERY sweet and tasty.

They are so delicious that for me they are like a dessert. We have dinner, and after dinner we grab some to eat while we are watching a TV show on Netflix.

So before they are all gone, yesterday I had an idea to add them in my salad. I know this salad was going to taste wonderful because I am a huge fan of fruits in my salad.

I just don’t understand why I didn’t use clementine before in my salads. This is my first time that I added them and it turned so delicious, giving a nice sweetness to the dish.

I used clementines, but any other type of citrus fruit will work fine in this salad. As you all know, I love a crunchy element in the salad, and for this reason I am using cashew nuts.

However, you can add any other kind of nuts like walnuts and almonds because it won’t make any difference. All the ingredients that are in there add a little bit of sweetness or crunch to this salad.

This recipe comes together in just few minutes. So, it is perfect for those busy days when you don’t have time to make anything very complicated for lunch.

Since in this salad you don’t have lots of protein, you should eat it with some fish, chicken breast or even a filling bowl of soup. This salad is so delicious that I could literally eat this almost every day!
