Arugula Salad with Jalapeño Vinaigrette
Why I Love This Recipe
FEATURING: Arugula, lettuce, onion (or green onion), jalapeño pepper, tomatoes, garlic, and coriander.
A vinaigrette with a great twist that is surprisingly not too overpowering. This recipe is slightly adapted from Ricardo Cuisine. If I happen to have lots of arugula, I just use arugula, as the original recipe calls for. Otherwise, I like to add regular lettuce in it too.
