Vibrant Orange & Arugula Salad

Vibrant Orange & Arugula Salad

Beautiful green salad featuring fresh oranges, goat cheese, almonds and radishes. A simple lemon dressing ties it all together.

Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Sliced Almonds
  • 5 to 6 ounces Baby Arugula
  • 2 Oranges, peeled and sliced into thin rounds
  • 2 ounces Goat Cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup Thinly Sliced and Chopped Radishes
  • Pinch Ground Cinnamon
  • Dressing:
  • 1/4 cup Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp Honey
  • 1/4 tsp Salt

Instructions

  1. First, toast the almonds: In a small skillet over medium heat, warm the almonds until they are fragrant and starting to turn golden on the edges, stirring frequently (careful, they’ll burn!), about 5 minutes. Transfer them to a bowl to cool.
  2. Place the arugula on a large serving platter or into a large serving bowl. Arrange the oranges, toasted almonds, goat cheese and radishes on top. Sprinkle the top lightly with a pinch or two of cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, honey and salt. Whisk together until blended. Taste, and add a little more honey if it’s unpleasantly tart.
  4. Once you’re ready to serve, drizzle the dressing lightly over the salad (you might have a little extra), toss, and serve immediately.
