Arugula Salad with Red Wine Vinaigrette – The Perfect Green Salad

This is my go-to green salad. The arugula has a peppery bite to it which pairs wonderfully with the acid in the red wine vinaigrette. It’s a perfect pairing for rich dishes.

This is my go to green salad. The arugula has a nice peppery bite, but the dressing has a sweet taste that balances out the flavors perfectly. I top it off with some shaved parmesan and toasted pine nuts for added crunch.

This dressing couldn’t be easier to make. Plus, it stores nicely in the fridge, so it’s great to keep on hand for dinners throughout the week. Enjoy!

    I made this salad for a potluck this past weekend (with Erin’s help). It went over SO well! I even had people ask for my recipe, something that rarely happens. You gotta try it!

    This arugula salad looks incredibly delicious, healthy and flavoursome. Definitely a salad I will be making for myself this week!
