Good morning, friends!
Is anyone else obsessed with arugula as of late?
I’ve been making arugula salads all week — simple, peppery, and completely delicious. Be prepared to swoon.
Late Summer Arugula Salad
- Tomatoes, sliced (I splurged on heirloom — SO worth it!)
- Avocado, sliced (check out this post for my sneaky way to slice avocados)
- Cracked pepper & salt to taste (I used lots of pepper and only a tiny bit of salt)
- Equal parts:
- Lemon juice (fresh from a lemon or in the cute lemon containers)
- Hemp oil
Those four ingredients = my absolute favorite salad dressing EVER. Seriously. Hemp oil is very nutritious, too! It’s made from the seeds of the hemp plant and has a pleasant nutty flavor.
Oh and don’t worry, this salad will not get you high Hemp seeds (unlike the bud and leaves of the cannabis plant) do not contain any psychoactive molecules
I recommend serving with a glass of homemade iced tea
Matt and I also enjoyed a Mediterranean tasting plate along with the arugula salad:
Mmmm… love me some tabouli, hummus, and pita. And baby carrots
Matt and I are spending the day trying to finally get our apartment all set up. We have photos to hang, furniture and knick knacks to organize, and more! Plus, I have lots of reading and schoolwork to do… and I want to try to squeeze in a little yoga action as well I did a lot of running this week and I am feeling rather sore and tight today!
Have a wonderful Sunday!
