Clean Eating Arugula Cranberry Salad

Clean eating Arugala cranberry salad

This salad is very refreshing and has a nice flavor just from the arugula alone. The leaves are delicate and almost have a peppery taste to them. You can now find them already packaged in the market, washed and ready to serve. How great on a busy weeknight. This simple salad has just a few ingredients with a light orange dressing. You can add protein such as chicken, steak, tofu or beans for a heartier salad.
