Fresh Salad Idea

This is a great quick and refreshing recipe for a lighter lunch. 

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 or tofu to this salad for extra protein.
