  • Lemon Vinaigrette:
  • 2-3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil more if desired
  • 1 clove of garlic minced
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste

  • Salad:
  • 4 cups arugula
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1/4 red onion sliced thinly
  • 2 tbsp toasted pine nuts
  • Shaved Parmesan to taste


  • Make the lemon vinaigrette by combining lemon juice, olive oil, minced garlic, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.
  • Whisk until well combined. Set aside to allow flavors to mingle.
  • Side Note:
    We like our vinaigrette tangy, if you don't, add more olive oil, to taste.
  • Combine the arugula with spinach in a large bowl. Add the thinly sliced red onion and toasted pine nuts.
  • Whisk the lemon vinaigrette well then drizzle some on top of the salad, to taste. Toss to coat the salad evenly.
  • Place on serving plates then top with shaved Parmesan and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste.
  • Serve and enjoy!
