Orange and Arugula Salad with Feta and Walnuts Recipe
After all the gluttony of the heavy holiday eating, I wanted to share this lighter Orange and Arugula Salad with Feta and Walnuts Recipe which is just perfect for January! Did you know that oranges are a winter fruit? Citrus typically comes into season in November which is why oranges were such a common Christmas stocking stuffer back in the day.
Between the oranges in the salad and the lemon vinaigrette salad dressing topping it, this salad is packed with citrus flavor and zest!
The full, printable recipe is below, but here are the ingredients:
- Feta Cheese
But, of course, feel free to add or substitute with other flavors and ingredients!
The feta can be replaced with fresh goat cheese or gorgonzola. Sliced, cooked beets are also a great addition to this salad. And pomegranate seeds would be amazing as well!
The walnuts are the perfect crunchy substitute for traditional croutons, but feel free to swap them out for pecans, almonds, or even toasted chickpeas!
And I topped my salad with my easy-to-make Citrus Vinaigrette Salad Dressing using lemons, oranges, garlic, mustard, honey, and olive oil. My tip: make a double batch to use as a marinade for some chicken for the next night!
