Avocado, Sesame and Baked Carrot Arugula Salad

arugula salad

Now, this is a salad that could never bore me. I love the way the inherent sweetness of the carrots is intensified once baked and then pairs perfectly with the creaminess of the avocados. Arugula has an intense peppery flavor, so I like to pair it with a mix of other greens to balance out its bitterness. A savory punch from the salad’s vinaigrette brings all the flavors together in one uniform arugula salad that has a variety of textures and tastes. With each bite, you also get the goodness of greens. It’s the perfect lunch, snack, or pre-dinner nosh. Enjoy!

Salads glow, no matter what.
