Mexican Salad with Pomegranate-Lime Dressing

If you cut the pomegranate in half and juice it that way, the resulting juice will be more bitter and acrid than if you remove the arils from the pomegranate and crush them to release their juice. (The white membrane of the pomegranate is really not nice, IMO.)

Substitute coconut sugar or date sugar or something for the sugar, and (of course) don’t toast the pine nuts.

From Cooking Light.

Arugula, Carrot & Celery Root Salad with Almonds

Also from Fine Cooking.

Arugula, Carrot & Celery Root Salad with Almonds recipe

Arugula, Carrot & Celery Root Salad with Almonds

This salad has everything going for it—spicy arugula, sweet grated carrots and celery root, crunchy almonds—all topped off with a vibrant honey-mustard vinaigrette.

Watch a video of Laurie Buckle demonstrating how easy it is to make your own vinaigrette.

Serves ten to twelve.

2 Tbs. apple cider vinegar
2 Tbs. honey
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
6 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 medium carrots (1 lb.)
1 medium celery root (3/4 to 1 lb.)
6 lightly packed cups baby arugula (about 6 oz.)
3/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro


In a small bowl, whisk the vinegar, honey, and mustard. Whisk in the oil and season with 1/2 tsp. salt and a few grinds of pepper.

Peel and trim the carrots and celery root and then grate them in a food processor fitted with a medium grating disk. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the arugula, half of the almonds and half of the cilantro; toss with the vinaigrette. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with the remaining almonds and cilantro and serve.

Make Ahead Tips

You can make the dressing and prep the almonds and arugula up to a day ahead. Grate the carrots and chop the cilantro an hour or two ahead, but grate the celery root shortly before serving, as it may oxidize and turn brown if done earlier.

Arugula Salad with Fresh Blueberries, Dried Cranberries and Orange Dressing

I’m not fond of sage, so I’d probably replace it with some other herb. Looking at The Flavor Bible, some possibilities are basil, cilantro, dill, fennel (fresh, I assume they mean), mint, parsley, or watercress.

From Raw Epicurean.

Arugula and Sage with Fresh Blueberries, Dried Cranberries and Orange Dressing

Thought I’m currently totally into arugula, pretty much any type of green will taste great with the other ingredients in this recipe.

Arugula, I used 1 package of pre-washed baby arugula
1/4 cup fresh sage, thinly sliced/chiffonade *
2-3 thinly sliced red onion rings, cut in half and separated
1 package [4.4 oz] fresh blueberries
1/3 cup dried cranberries
sunflower seeds and orange zest, optional

In a large bowl add arugula, sage, red onion, blueberries, and dried cranberries. Add about 1/4 cup orange dressing and toss to coat. Divide salad between 4 salad plates or bowls. Top the salad with a sprinkle of sunflower seeds and some orange zest.

Serves 4

Orange Dressing

This sweet and tangy dressing is great over greens, grilled vegetables or a grain-based salad.

1 tablespoon orange peel zest
1/3 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon thinly sliced fresh sage
1 teaspoon agave, or preferred sweetener, optional
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon each sea salt and fresh ground white pepper, or to taste
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Add all ingredient, except the olive oil, in a small bowl. Whisk together. Then gradually whisk in the olive oil until the mixture has thickened. Use as much as needed to dress a salad or vegetables. Refrigerate the rest in an airtight container up to one week. Bring the dressing to room temperature and whisk before using.

Yield 2/3 cup

*Chiffonade is a cutting technique that you can use to cut up any flat leafy food, herbs like basil, or leafy greens like spinach.
