Arugula and Apple Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette (Serves 4)
courtesy of Bon Appetite

A very simple recipe for a refreshing, light salad. For variation: add a teaspoon of dijon mustard and a splash of champagne vinegar to the dressing,freshly cracked pepper! That is a classic dressing that I make quite often. Make it in a used mustard jar and it will keep in your fridge for at least a week.

1/3 cup freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
1/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
pinch of good salt (I use Murray River Pink) but kosher works well too, to taste
1 bunch arugula, rinsed, dried and torn
1 apple, cored and sliced
Optional: 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
or sliced avocado

  1. In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine grapefruit juice, orange juice, olive oil, and salt. Shake vigorously.
  2. In a salad bowl, combine arugula, pear, and red pepper. Drizzle dressing over salad, and toss to coat. Serve immediately.

Girl Meets dirt uses the highest quality, locally sourced, organic fruit, unrefined organic cane sugar, a squeeze of organic lemon, and classically prepares the preserves by hand in seasoned copper pans in their Orcas Island Kitchen! They don't use commercial pectin either, instead they rely on time and concentration for set.
