orange arugula salad with goat cheese, almonds and radishes

Ingredients

Salad
Lemon dressing

Instructions

  1. First, toast the almonds: In a small skillet over medium heat, warm the almonds until they are fragrant and starting to turn golden on the edges, stirring frequently (careful, they’ll burn!), about 5 minutes. Transfer them to a bowl to cool.
  2. Place the arugula on a large serving platter or into a large serving bowl. Arrange the oranges, toasted almonds, goat cheese and radishes on top. Sprinkle the top lightly with a pinch or two of cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, honey and salt. Whisk together until blended. Taste, and add a little more honey if it’s unpleasantly tart.
  4. Once you’re ready to serve, drizzle the dressing lightly over the salad (you might have a little extra), toss, and serve immediately.

Notes

Storage suggestions: If you intend to have leftover salad, store the salad and dressing separately, and toss individual portions just before serving.

Make it dairy free: Omit the goat cheese.

Make it vegan: Omit the goat cheese and use maple syrup instead of honey.

Make it nut free: Substitute sunflower seeds for the almonds, or omit them altogether.
