3 Simple Ways to Make Arugula Salad this Summer

Don’t you just love arugula?  I think I could eat an arugula salad every single day.  Actually, I practically do!

In the summer when you don’t feel like cooking, an arugula salad can make a great lunch…or dinner!

Today, I’m going to share 3 simple ways to make an arugula salad.  

3 simple arugula salad recipes

After playing around with many different combinations, I have come up with my 3 favorites. (in no particular order)…

“The Mango”

arugula salad with mango and goat cheese


Arugula, mango, avocado and goat cheese sprinkled with sliced almonds.  Splash on some olive oil and lime juice to make it a refreshing summer salad!  This salad also uses some ingredients from my favorite Mango Avocado Salsa.  Just make sure you use a ripe mango because the mango is really the star of this one!

“The Cranberry”

And if you want more of an Italian spin…

“The Parm”

Arugula Salad with Parmesan

You can’t go wrong with Arugula, tomatoes, shaved Parmesan Cheese, toasted pine nuts with lemon and olive oil.  Though I am not a huge fan of dressings, my husband likes it with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

If you want to turn any of these salads into more of a main course, you can add grilled chicken or shrimp.

You might have noticed I didn’t give measurements for any of the ingredients.  Just cut up the amount you like and throw it in!

It’s summer – get out of the kitchen and enjoy!
