Arugula Walnut Salad

Updated: Sep 13, 2023

Anytime I make a carb-y meal, I always make sure to have some veggies on the side, and most of the time I just make a quick side salad like this one! This salad took me about 8-10 minutes to make and it was a delicious and nutritious Mediterranean-inspired dish. Also a great meal prep salad if you want to add some chicken or shrimp to. Let's get to the recipe!
