Arugula Salad with Sweet Orange Vinaigrette

Arugula Salad with Sweet Orange Vinaigrette
What you need
about 4 or 5 large hanfuls of Arugula
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup of toasted walnuts, roughly chopped
1 Granny Smith Apple, peeled and chopped into large chunks
Tempeh Bacon 2 strips cooked and cut into small bite size pieces
Sweet Orange Vinaigrette
3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp Pure Grade B Maple Syrup
1 tsp of orange zest
fresh squeezed orange juice (from the orange you zested) add to taste, I just took the juice from the one orange but just taste as you go to your own liking
salt and pepper to taste
2/3 cup olive oil whisked in last and slowly to emulsify
Place all salad ingredients in a large bowl, and toss with just enough vinaigrette to barely coat the salad. Go easy and light on the dressing so that you don't overpower the rest of the flavors of the salad.
Light, fresh, and easy!
