Lemon-Balsamic Arugula Salad with Pine Nuts

This salad is quite simple, but loaded with flavor and nutrition.

Enjoy it as an accompaniment to a Mediterranean-style meal, or just serve with some bread and maybe a cup of soup for a light lunch or supper.


2 tablespoons pine nuts
4 to 6 ounces fresh baby arugula
3 to 4 tablespoons Lemon-Balsamic Vinaigrette

Toast the pine nuts in a dry skillet over low to medium-low heat for few minutes until lightly golden. Remove from heat and set aside.

Place the arugula in a large bowl. Add the vinaigrette to the arugula, tossing well. Use only enough dressing to lightly coat all of the greens.

Sprinkle with the pine nuts, and serve.

  1. Arugula is so delicious this time of year. I like the little bit of pin nuts and lemon balsamic vinaigrette sounds wonderful.
