Arugula Pear Salad

Arugula Pear Salad

This arugula pear salad brings together the perfect crisp cooling salad you would want on a hot summer day! When you’re bored of spinach, this will step things up in your salad game. Other common names for arugula are rocket, eruca, or colewort. Add in the avocado + it’ll give you a more satiated feeling at the end of your meal!

Arugula, among other leafy greens, is one of the most nutrient- dense foods you can consume! I love it to top over healthy pizza or morning eggs,

Avocado … did you know its the most nutrient packed food on the planet? It’s labeled one of the world’s healthiest superfoods and “hip” foods. Not only will avocado bring healthy fats into this salad, but olive oil will too! Here is my secret to a pretty avocado presentation every time! If you are a big fan of avocado, try our

Chocolate avocado mousse

Avocado Flourless Cake

Olive oil will help you absorb the fat soluble vitamins that you’ll find in salad! And the walnuts, well they provide a perfect crunch and even MORE healthy fats.
