  • salt & pepper to taste

Simple Arugula Salad (1 serving)

  • 2 cups arugula
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds

Notes

Note on Oils:

*If you plan to cook with this dressing (i.e. as a marinade), be sure to use a high smoke point oil!  
Extra-virgin olive oil has a low smoke point—meaning it will release toxic byproducts when heated above a certain temperature, and it is best used on cold dishes like salads. For cooking, use high smoke point oils like light or extra-light olive oil, or avocado oil.
