Arugula Salad with Honey-Wine Dressing

by brenda on January 6, 2011

Since we’re not shopping for 3 months, we’re eating up the fresh arugula we bought from a local farmer and enjoying it while it lasts! I found this dressing on Food Network, and then I added two extra ingredients into our salad: dried cranberries (I found local ones sweetened with honey, YUM. If you can’t find them, dry your own! :)) and roasted, salted pumpkin seeds or sesame seeds.

 

For the dressing, combine the following in a food processor or blender:

2 T white wine

2 T lemon juice

1/2 tsp honey

1/2 tsp mustard (or mustard powder, I’m pretty sure that’s what I used!)

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

then, keep the food processor or blender going and slowly add in

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

 

For the salad:

Rip up some arugula–a bunch of it. Add in some roasted pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds and dried cranberries and mix with some of the dressing. We’ve used this dressing 2 times this week and we’ll be able to use it one more time to feed our family of 6.

 

YUM!!!
