Simple Arugula Salad!

Let’s start by saying, I loooooooove grocery shopping. Yep, you heard right. I am in love! I always go by myself, it’s like my peace time! During my trip, of course I get my usual kitchen staples, but I like to get some things that I don’t normally use, or have never played with! I know arugula is a very common green, but I just never ever use it! I used to think it was too bitter & pepper-y, but I thought I should give it another go! Expand my pallette I suppose! Another scary ingredient….fennel…heard of it, but scared of it! (what a baby…) So anyway, I bought these items, added some of my other favorite ingredients for a beautiful, simple, but sooooo flavorful salad!

arugula salad

Arugula with Shaved Fennel, Zucchini & Pumpkin Seeds!

1 bag organic arugula

about 1/2 cup shaved fennel (use a mandoline, or slice VERY thin with a knife.)

1 med size green zucchini, shaved with mandoline

1/4-1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds

1/4-1/2 cup grassfed cheese (optional, if you wanna get CRAY! :))

1 apple of your choice, cored, chopped into chunks

Dressing:

about 1/3 cup EVOO

about 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice

S&P

**Mix your dressing in a bowl. Add the fennel & zucchini to the dressing & marinate it for about 10 or so minutes. Mix up the rest of your salad ingredients to a large bowl..Arugula, pumpkin seeds, apple. After about 10 minutes & you are ready to serve, add your mix of zucchini, fennel & dressing to your arugula & toss! Add your grassfed cheese if desired! This salad is delish, & still delish the next day!!! ❤
