Arugula Salad with Sesame dressing

Author Notes: Taking salad for lunch gets boring, so I was looking for an easy way to add Asian flavors to a brown-bag green salad. This one makes lunch at the desk feel like a treat.AnneF

Serves: 1

  • 1 1/2 cups arugula
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 celery stalk, sliced thin & on the bias
  • 1 teaspoon peanut oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sriacha hot sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  1. Wash & dry arugula & put it in your bowl or tupperware.
  2. Top with carrots, celery, and/or any fresh vegetables that you have on hand. Red pepper is nice. I think this salad liked to be crunchy & chopped fine. Frozen peas are also good--they thaw by lunch time.
  3. Put all the dressing ingredients, including sesame seeds, into a sandwich-sized ziploc baggie.
  4. Seal the baggie tight and swish the ingredients around.
  5. Take to work. Dress the salad at lunch time. Enjoy!
