Orange & Arugula Salad (Recipe)



✅ ¼ cup sliced almonds

✅ 5 to 6 ounces baby arugula

✅ ​​​2 oranges, peeled and sliced into thin rounds

✅ 2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled (about ½ cup)

✅ ¼ cup thinly sliced and roughly chopped radishes

✅ Pinch of ground cinnamon, to sprinkle on top

Lemon dressing:

✅ ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

✅ 3 tablespoons lemon juice

✅ 1 ½ teaspoons honey

✅ ¼ teaspoon salt


1️⃣ First, toast the almonds: In a small skillet over medium heat, warm the almonds until they are fragrant and starting to turn golden on the edges, stirring frequently (careful, they’ll burn!), about 5 minutes. Transfer them to a bowl to cool.

2️⃣ Place the arugula on a large serving platter or into a large serving bowl. Arrange the oranges, toasted almonds, goat cheese and radishes on top. Sprinkle the top lightly with a pinch or two of cinnamon. Set aside.

3️⃣ In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, honey and salt. Whisk together until blended. Taste, and add a little more honey if it’s unpleasantly tart.

4️⃣ Once you’re ready to serve, drizzle the dressing lightly over the salad (you might have a little extra), toss, and serve immediately.
