arugula saladNow that the summer months are upon us, our bodies naturally crave light foods, and small meals that are easy…and cooling.

Arugula is a powerful antioxidant and has anti-inflammatory properties, which means it’s great for disease prevention and good for our immune system. I love this super simple salad because it’s tasty, refreshing, and simple to make! You can add chicken to this salad for extra protein.
