Lemon Sea Salt Arugula Salad

This Lemon Sea Salt Arugula Salad is probably the side salad that I make the most! You just need 5 ingredients and about 2 minutes to whip this refreshing, nutritious green side dish up for the family to enjoy.

Once upon a time, I thought, “goodness, I haven't posted anything to my Instagram Stories today!” So, while I was whipping up a quick dinner, I quickly showed the UBER simple (but UBER delicious, of course) side dish that was accompanying our grilled steaks and baked potatoes. It was a side dish that I made (and still make) ALL THE TIME. It was none other than my very most favorite salad: the Lemon Sea Salt Arugula Salad. I shared (in Stories) how this simple salad came together, settled in for dinner with my hubby, and thought nothing else of it. THEN, the notes started rolling in. Several of you MADE the salad (I'm always amazed when you make my recipes) and LOVED it! After the story series disappeared, as they do after 24 hours, I received dozens of notes asking for a repeat/repost. Even though it took me a few months, I'm finally making good on my promises to you!

This salad is so simple, I feel a little silly sharing it …but it's also so good, so I know you're in good hands if you want to give it a go! Now that the weather is a cooler, arugula is back in season, so this salad can be quickly made any night of the week. All you need to do is grab a handful of fresh arugula, drizzle with a little olive oil, a squeeze of fresh lemon, a pinch of sea salt (crucial), and a crack of black pepper (also crucial). Give it a quick toss and BOOM – a fresh, delicious side salad that will go nicely next to just about every meal! I especially like it next to Italian food (mmmm …pasta) because the bright flavors balance out anything heavy.

I hope you enjoy!

    I threw this together with dinner last night (literally only took 2 minutes) and was surprised at how tasty it was!! It seemed so simple so I wasn’t expecting too much, but I really enjoyed it. The citrus flavor with the spiciness of the arugala was fantastic. A quick and yummy way to get some greens in. Thank you, Cassy!
