vegan salad recipes – arugula apple salad

Makes 4 servings

The sweetness of the apple balances nicely with the assertive flavors of arugula, red onion, and the tangy mustard dressing.

2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley

1⁄3 cup olive oil

1⁄2 teaspoon salt

1⁄4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 cups arugula leaves

3 cups chopped leaf lettuce

1⁄2 small red onion, cut into 1⁄4-inch slices

1 apple, such as Gala or Fuji, halved, cored, and cut into 1⁄4-inch slices

  1. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, mustard, parsley, oil, salt, and pepper. Whisk until emulsified. Set aside to allow flavors to blend, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the arugula, leaf lettuce, onion, and apple. Add enough dressing to lightly coat. Toss gently to combine and serve.

Salad Basics

With bagged lettuce blends and bottled dressings widely available, putting a salad together can be as simple as toss and serve. But bagged salads can be expensive and less than fresh, and bottled dressings can be hit or miss in terms of flavor (not to mention expensive).

Sometimes less really is more. Take the classic French green salad, which consists of butterhead lettuce dressed with a simple vinaigrette. When the lettuce is fresh, and the vinaigrette made with high-quality oil and vinegar, the flavor is beyond comparison.

A salad doesn’t have to be complicated or contain a mile-long list of ingredients, but the lettuce and other ingredients do need to be the freshest possible and the dressing of good quality.

While a simple green salad with a light vinaigrette is lovely, most of us enjoy some variety. There are no hard-and-fast rules to salad making: you can combine a variety of greens, soft tender leaves such as Boston or Bibb, bitter ones like arugula or chicory, and crunchy ones such as romaine.

Embellishments such as raw or cooked vegetables, fresh or dried fruit, toasted nuts, or cooked beans can add flavor, color, and texture to salads. Infuse your vinaigrette with garlic, mustard, and/or fresh herbs such as basil, parsley, or tarragon.

Also, experiment with oils and vinegars. If you don’t want the pronounced flavor of olive oil, substitute grapeseed oil. If you want a distinctive nutty flavor, consider adding some walnut or toasted sesame oil. For variety, be sure to keep an array of vinegars on hand, including balsamic, sherry, rice, and cider. Use lemon or lime juice instead of vinegar when it seems appropriate. Rich creamy dressings are usually best on crisp lettuces, while lighter dressings do better on softer leaves.
