Oma’s Arugula Salad

Oma’s Arugula Salad is a fresh salad with mixed greens, red onion, cherry tomatoes, and avocado with a delicious and flavorful anti-Inflammatory dressing. My Oma, which means grandmother in German, passed down this recipe. It is a staple in our house, and I make this salad at least a few times a week.

Arugula Salad

Oma’s Arugula Salad was a part of almost every meal growing up. The dressing brings me back to her dinner table as a kid when we were all together as a family enjoying a beautifully made meal.

What I love about Oma’s Arugula Salad is it’s so fresh and tasty. Made with lemon juice, fresh olive oil, and a blend of seasonings, the dressing is great for any salad you want to create.

Use an array of different vegetables in this recipe. Diversity is great for gut health. One of my favorite veggies to add in are any type of radish. The radish adds a crunch and peppery flavor to the salad.
