My Arugula And Apricots With A Lemon Vinaigrette


This salad is so simple and so flavorful, it’s my favorite and if you love all kinds of salads, you’ll love this one. Just place some arugula, thinly sliced red onion, some fresh apricots. A few raspberries, and finally some pistachios for crunch. The colors are vibrant and the textures are vast, and that’s what makes a great salad. In a measuring cup, or small jelly jar with a lid add 1 tablespoon of Agave nectar, 4 tablespoons or 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice ( 3 lemons) 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard, 1 teaspoon of Kosher salt and 1/2 a teaspoon of black pepper. Whisk all this together really well and then start to drizzle in the E.V.O.O about 1/2 a cup ( I like 1 part acid 2 parts oil)  while you’re continuously whisking. You’ll see the dressing come together. That’s all there is to it. Spoon the dressing on and enjoy.
