If you’re someone who loves a good salad with a bit of a kick, then you have to try this Arugula Mushroom Salad. I’ve always been a fan of arugula’s unique flavor which has a nice kick almost like pepper, and this recipe highlights that flavor perfectly. But don’t just take my word for it, arugula is considered a superfood, loaded with antioxidants and a variety of essential vitamins and minerals.
This salad is the perfect combination of crunchy and savory, with the mushrooms and arugula being the stars of the show. And to make this dish even more delicious, I love adding cherry tomatoes and red onions for a touch of sweetness and spice.
But what really takes this salad to the next level is the lemon dressing. The tangy flavor of the lemon combined with the garlic, honey, and whole grain mustard make this dressing the perfect complement to the mushrooms and arugula.
And the best part? This recipe is easy to make and only takes a few minutes. Simply sauté the mushrooms until they’re nice and browned, and then mix with the arugula, cherry tomatoes, and red onions. Top with the delicious lemon dressing, and voilà! You have a healthy and delicious meal that’s sure to impress.
