A Spring Arugula Salad

Happy Spring!

It is now officially spring, and with that comes a new recipe. Today I am sharing a recipe for a simple salad, loaded with spring vegetables. This can make a full meal if you add enough cheese and pumpkin seeds, however I like to enjoy this salad as a side to baked fish or chicken.

Arugula is the star here, and a vegetable that is quite easy to find. Arugula is a great bitter green, which can be helpful for our digestive system, while also  a very nutrient-dense vegetables containing carotenoids, potassium, iron, calcium and many other phytochemicals.
