I am mildly obsessed with arugula so I will hammer my love of arugula home with one and final arugula recipe – for a while anyway. This salad has similar components to my favorite “go to” chicken salad but with the yummy smokey addition of arugula and a few other ingredients. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Amazing Arugula Chicken Salad
4 cooked chicken breast diced
2 cups shredded green cabbage
6 cups fresh arugula
1 organic apple diced
6 strips of nitrate free bacon diced
3 tbsp dried rosemary
4 1/2 oz julienned sun dried tomatoes with olive oil
3 green onions diced
Juice from 1/2 a lemon
Small handful of sliced almonds
Olive oil and black pepper to taste
In a large mixing bowl toss in the arugula, cabbage, apple, and onion. While the chicken and bacon are still warm, add these items to the bowl as well. Top with the sun dried tomatoes, lemon juice, rosemary, and any additional olive oil and black pepper to taste. Toss the ingredients all together and serve immediately topped with a small handful of sliced almonds.
