Arugula Salad with Pomegranate Vinaigrette
Saturday morning I was sitting at The Bean Cycle, my former place of employment and still one of my favorite places to hang and drink copious amounts of coffee. I was drumming my fingers on the counter while scrolling through google, on a mission to determine what the difference was in preparing a stellar Drunken Mussels and an incredibly average one. I looked up and my eyes landed on Renee, one of my good friends waiting in line.
I hopped up and we ended up having a 40 minute catch-up-on-life conversation while the poor lady in the seat next to us, who must have forgotten her earphones, tried to work. Our convo rolled around to the blog and what I told her I was thinking of posting Drunken Mussels and Crab Mac n Cheese for Valentine’s Day. She was thrilled with the idea and eagerly employed me to get the recipes up so she could make that as her Valentines Dinner. She then brought up that a salad to cut all of the heaviness might be a nice idea.
A salad, of course! I had been too busy drooling over crab meat drowned in cheese sauce to think about anything fresh and green. Thanks to Renee, one of my healthier friends, you all have a well-rounded menu. Honestly I don’t think a salad is worth making if it’s not something you actually want to eat so take my word for it when I say this arugula and pomegranate salad is simple, fresh, tangy and good. It will provide a boost to your taste buds and your libido because guess what? Arugula, Pomegranate and honey are all aphrodisiac foods. A perfect addition to your Valentine’s Meal. Enjoy!
