Tangerine & Arugula Salad

Tangerine & Arugula Salad

A refreshing and vegan salad that looks beautiful to the eyes as well. The tangerines and arugula leaves gives a burst of freshness while the toasted sesame seeds adds the desired nuttiness to the salad. The quick balsamic vinaigrette lends the appropriate tang and sweetness and brings everything together. This is a simple, easy and quick recipe. This is my go to option for days which calls for busy lunches and quick dinners.

Feel free to add some roasted peanuts or walnuts or more roasted seeds of choice. I usually add sunflower seeds, chia seeds or pumpkin seeds which is roasted and it adds a beautiful crunch to the salad. I was just a bit lazy to roast them separately and that is why used pre-roasted sesame seeds.

Also if you are wondering about the stems along with the arugula leaves, it is full of vitamin A & C and hence I include that in my salads. You can take off the stems if you like your salad smooth.
