Amazing Arugula and Artichoke Salad

The combination of ingredients for this salad is so refreshing and perfect for the Spring season.  The herbaceous quality of arugula with its peppery and mustard essences is complemented by the flavorful herbs, artichokes and cherry tomatoes in this mix.  In addition the variety of textures from the creamy avocado to the crisp cucumbers makes each bite a real delight!


6-8 ounces organic arugula washed and spun

1 cup jarred or canned artichoke hearts sliced into fourths
1 cup grape tomatoes halved
1 avocado sliced
2 Persian/mini cucumbers sliced
1/4 cup fresh dill chopped
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Just under 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
Fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Add tomatoes, artichokes, cucumbers, avocado and dill to arugula.  Next, add olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper to taste.  So simple and tasty!  Enjoy!
