The Welcome Back Spring Arugula Salad

For The Salad
1 Package of arugula
Goat cheese, crumbled
Dried cranberries
Grapefruit segments

For The Dressing
1 TBS white wine vinegar
1 TBS Dijon mustard
4-5 Chives, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste

The days getting longer and the nights are getting a little warmer, so it's time to put away those heavy, calorie-laden comfort food recipes! This salad creation (which Rich likes to call his signature salad), is the perfect dish to welcome glorious spring weather.

For the dressing mix together the vinegar and mustard, slowly whisk in the oil until an emulsion forms. Stir in chives and season with salt and pepper. Toss arugula, goat cheese, cranberries and grapefruit in a large bowl. Before serving, drizzle with the dressing, mixing together until coated. This is a greater starter or side dish, but you can make it a main course if you top with a protein like breaded chicken cutlets or grilled salmon. Tonight I'm serving with warm BBQ chicken breast.
