  • A classic, Arugula Salad recipe. 

    arugula salad with lemon vinaigrette

    I wish my mom could see me now…eating salad. Years ago, I refused salad but along the way, I learned it was the lettuce I didn’t love. However arugula, it has my whole heart.

    Arugula is not only pretty, but it’s tender with a slightly tangy flavor, which means it doesn’t require much. A simple dressing and shaved parmesan will do. If you really want to go crazy, a crack of pepper.

    That’s why I not only enjoy this arugula salad with a meal, but as a meal. I often enjoy it for a light lunch. With only 6 calories a cup, it’s a win for my I hope to be in a two piece this summer initiative. It will never happen because of my love for wine, but a girl can dream.

    How many calories are in an arugula salad?

    As I mentioned before, my favorite way to enjoy an arugula is to keep it simple. This salad comes in at just 227 calories per serving, but is full of flavor. I always feel satisfied after eating it, and better yet, great about myself!
