Arugula Salad with Sesame Vinaigrette

Arugula Salad with Sesame Vinaigrette

Salads like this Arugula Salad with Sesame Vinaigrette are not only healthy (of course, that depends on the salad dressing you choose) but they are great for lunch or as a side to your dinner.  This is a simple arugula salad with a homemade Sesame Vinaigrette that is light and tasty. If you don’t like the veggies or arugula you can use this dressing on any type of salad.

Pair this Arugula Salad with Sesame Vinaigrette with my recipe for crispy salmon with orange-ginger vinaigrette. They go great together!

I made this sesame dressing last night and it was really good. I made enough to use it for the week.

Tara- Thanks for stopping by and I am glad you liked the dressing! I love making my own salad dressings now so I can control everything that goes in them. They taste fresher too!
