Savory Arugula Salad

This salad is so light and fresh, but hearty and satisfying at the same time. Typically, I pair arugula with sweet fruits, but this is my favorite savory combo when I want to reset my sweet tooth. It’s full of so many different textures to keep you entertained until the last bite. Keep as a side, or add protein for a main dish.
