(Updated) This Arugula Salad recipe has been a fan-fave since 2011! It is a private fave as properly. Tropical flavors of candy mango and salty, crunchy macadamia nuts mingle with spicy arugula lettuce and buttery avocado. This simple-ingredient salad is so flavorful that it barely even needs dressing. But if you want to add some, I feel a drizzle of excellent additional virgin olive oil and lemon juice is simply good. (Dressing suggestion in the recipe.)
I really like this salad on a busy day as lunch, or as a dinner salad topped with tempeh bacon or skillet chickpeas.
Some ideas for this salad:
– Use a mango that’s good and ripe. You want the candy juices to actually take in into the arugula – and assist soften it a bit.
– Use macadamia nuts which might be roasted AND salted. That salt really goes a great distance in this salad. You can add them entire, or chop them up into macadamia nut bits.
– If you just can’t find macadamia nuts – they are often onerous to seek out typically – use salted and roasted cashews as an alternative. Those are the perfect sub, I have found. Chopped Brazil nuts work properly too.
– Be generous with the avocado! (Good recommendation for any recipe, actually…)
– If your arugula is just too giant or long/stringy, escape your culinary shears and reduce the arugula up.
…Culinary shears and extra cooking goodies are in the kitchen section of my HHL store.
And actually, I do not actually assume this salad wants dressing. But go together with your style buds on this one.

One thing I brought back with me from the Dole Salad Summit, was the inspiration to make this Arugula Salad. It combines crisp, zesty arugula leaves with roasted macadamia nuts, freshly diced mango and tender cubes of avocado. A simple combo value making an attempt. It simply might rescue dinnertime (because it did mine!)..
In part three of my wrap-up posts (part 1 – half 2) you will get Dole’s take on “Salad 101” – and for us bloggers, that meant tasting a couple of salads. This vegan arugula salad that I tasted on the Dole Fresh Vegetables headquarters actually gained me over. So I re-made it final night time – salad-licious.
Here’s to the salad that saved dinnertime.
Last night time was a type of evenings the place 5pm rolls around. Then all of the sudden, 5pm flashes to 6pm. Then it’s 7pm and earlier than you realize it I am nonetheless hunched over my pc at 8pm. And now all of the sudden I am lacking Dancing with the Stars. Gasp. Actually, perhaps that is an excellent factor.
Type, sort, sort. No end in website. “Stop working!” my mind shouts. But I trek on into the night time, forgetting about dinner, forgetting concerning the ticking clock and feeling oh so nice about being productive.
“It’s 9 o’clock?” .. long pause as I stare fuzzily at my display. Click. Off. Goodbye display, hey dinnertime.
Yes indeed, I fell again on my salad. I knew I had this big, beautiful salad waiting in the fridge – so really, who cares what else goes with it, right? A number of smoky tempeh cubes or strips on prime for added protein. We additionally added a number of mild sandwiches along aspect this salad feast. And it was about 11pm once we lastly ate dinner. But it was a pleasant prize for an extended day of work – diving into an enormous salad bowl, my day can all the time finish on a high observe!
And this salad exhibits a whole lot of restraint for me. Usually I pile on the toppings – so solely 4 fundamental components – was a pleasantly scrumptious and easy shock.
