Versatile Side Salad

This salad was inspired by a trip to Amsterdam I took a few years ago. The food was so simple, yet so delicious! This recipe does justice to a salad I ate in a cute little coffee shop Downtown that I haven't been able to forget since! I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do :)

Versatile Side Salad Recipe:

Yield: 2 Salads

Cook Time: 15 Min


- 2 Cups Arugula, Washed & Dried

- ¼ Cup Red Onion, Sliced Thinly

- 2 Tbsp Pine Nuts

- 2 Tbsp Sunflower Seeds

- ½ Cup English Cucumber, Diced

- White Balsamic Vinaigrette:

o 1/8 Cup White Balsamic Vinegar

o ¼ tsp Salt

o 1/8 tsp White Pepper

o Pinch Garlic Powder

o ¼ Cup Olive Oil

o ¼ tsp Lemon Juice


1. Wash and dry arugula delicately. Cut red onion and English cucumber.

2. To prepare vinaigrette, add vinegar, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and lemon juice to a small bowl. Whisk ingredients together.

3. Slowly drizzle oil into the vinegar mixture, whisking constantly until vinaigrette comes together. (You can also add all the ingredients to a blender and blend for 2-3 minutes for a faster cook time)

4. To build salad, toss arugula with balsamic vinaigrette and top with cucumber and red onion. Sprinkle pine nuts and sunflower seeds over salad and serve, enjoy!


- When drying the arugula, don’t “scrunch” the lettuce with a paper towel or towel, let it dry on a towel for a few minutes while you prep the rest of your ingredients. This will help your lettuce have more body and crunch!
