Arugula Salad with Bacon Vinaigrette

This salad has been one of my favorites to make this winter. It’s fresh, filling, and has so much great flavor. Add some cheese, nuts, and a bacon vinaigrette and you’re set for lunch!

Arugula Salad with Bacon Vinaigrette Dressing

I’ve loved arugula for a long time adding it to pastas, but it’s great as a salad base as well. It has a peppery flavor to it that gives it added spice and texture. It’s fairly small in size so no need to chop it smaller to make it bite-sized.
