Green Apple and Arugula Stack Salad

I’ve been craving fresh, fun food lately. Well, to be quite frank, I’ve been craving fresh everything. After a whirlwind trip to the the beautiful Santa Monica, CA and yesterday’s inspirational post, fresh is on my mind. Maybe it’s because spring is on the way, or maybe I’ve been craving fresh change in my life. A small change in perspective can change everything.

Sometimes I think fresh can be as simple as turning a salad on its side. Stacking things a different way, changing up that perspective. I’m a big believer that even small changes can make a big

difference! Switching your latte to a skinny, and you might drop a pound or two or in a month. Buy a cute new journal, and you’ll be more inspired to write down your ideas in it! Put new tires on your old car and it feels like new again. Sometimes I even smile at people in traffic. Seriously. Try it! People’s reactions are funny and you might get a laugh. You never know whose day you’ll make! Little things, big difference.

For this Green Apple and Arugula Stack Salad, you’ll need:

1 Crisp Granny Smith Apple
1 cup fresh arugula
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon spicy chinese mustard
Little kosher salt and fresh black pepper

Makes one serving.

Start by slicing the apple into quarter inch thick slices. You want the apple slices to be strong enough to hold the stack. The crisper the apple the better. Plus, the sour flavor of the Granny Smith apple works well with the peppery arugula.

In a separate bowl, toss together the arugula, olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss until everything is coated well. Using tongs really helps here! You might need to toss it a few times, don’t be in a rush to use more oil, that will make your salad greasy… not the fresh taste we are going for here.

In a small separate bowl, whisk together the spicy mustard and balsamic vinegar until well blended.

Begin by making a bed with the arugula, then stack and layer the apple slices and arugula.

Drizzle the balsamic and mustard dressing over the top. Be careful not to just pour it over, it will look really messy.

Grab your fork and knife and you’re ready to dig in!

I could eat this all by itself! I think it would go great with a grilled fish or chicken as well.

Enjoy!
