Arugula Salad with Oranges and Feta


For too many unrelated to food reasons I was having a crappy week. As much as I tried to snap out of it, the deeper I fell. I realized today that small acts of kindness mean much more than you ever realize at the time. See I like to be the giver, not so comfortable at the receiving end, I am working on it however. Yesterday after a long day of work I pulled up to my mailbox . Still feeling blue, I opened my box and discovered an enormous bag of arugula, and lots of junk mail of course. I don't believe this individual knew my state of mind was a bit down, yet the gesture at that moment meant so much. So take a moment out of your day and think of a random act of kindness, foods always a good place to start. I tossed the arugula with oranges and feta, topped it off with a honey lime vinaigrette. Ive been collecting mini tea cups which are fun to fill with the vinaigrette for those 'dressing on the side types.' Enjoy.. now go stick something fun in someones mailbox, it really will make their day.

Vinaigrette
  • 1 1/2 ts honey
  • juice of 1/2 a lime
  • Kosher salt and Pepper
  • About 1/4 cup Olive Oil

Mix honey and lime juice together, slowly drizzle in olive oil, add salt and pepper

Salad

  • Bag of fresh baby Arugula
  • 2 oranges sectioned pith removed (pour any juice over salad).
  • About 1/2 block of crumbled feta

Mix arugula with orange sections and feta, toss lightly with vinaigrette
