Instructions

  • Add your arugula, spinach, corn, tomatoes and goat cheese to a salad bowl and toss gently.
  • Make your salad dressing by combining 1 tbsp olive oil, 1-2 tsp balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper to taste. You can also add 1/2 tsp fresh minced garlic for even more flavor!
  • Whisk the salad dressing ingredients together until combined.
  • Toss the dressing with the salad ingredients, and then top with slivered toasted almonds.

Notes

Top tips for making Spinach and Arugula Salad
  • You can prepare the salad ingredients and salad dressing separately and keep them in the fridge for several hours before tossing the salad and serving.
  • Toss the salad 5-10 minutes before serving so the arugula doesn't wilt before people have a chance to eat it!
  • You can use any kind of cheese you like: parmesan would work great in this salad, as would a sharp cheddar
  • I recommend fresh corn if you can find some, but if not you can also use frozen & thawed or canned corn as well.
  • To make this dish vegan, simply omit the goat cheese or use a vegan substitute
  • Feel free to add chopped fresh herbs to this salad! Fresh basil, marjoram, parsley, or even chives would all work well.
