This salad features one of my favourite kinds of lettuce that is
low in calories and high in vitamins and minerals like vitamins A, C, K, iron, calcium, folate, potassium, and magnesium).
All of those micronutrients can help support your immune system, eye health, and organ function. Plus, folate is critical in preventing birth defects.
Arugula also contains glucosinolates … a type of phytochemical believed to decrease the risk of breast, prostate, lung, and colon cancers.
And you won't even taste the sharp flavour of arugula in this recipe.
For the salad:
Prepare the salad by placing all of the ingredients in a large bowl.
Make the dressing by whisking together the juice, syrup, and zest. Continue whisking while slowly pouring a light stream of oil into the juice mixture. Keep whisking until combined. Season with salt and pepper.
Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat. Serve & enjoy!
