fig + arugula salad dressed in a honey + lime vinaigrette

Yesterday I spent the majority of the day supine, recovering from a brutal workout that made walking a considerable challenge. Suffice it to say, major meal preparations were out of the question. After creating a few sensible lunch dishes for the week (I’m still confounded by how much money I’m saving by preparing my lunches on Sundays instead of ordering delivery every day of the week), I sought a light, refreshing salad to close out my day.

There are so many things I love about this fig + arugula salad — the peppery bite of the arugula paired with the sweetness of the ripe figs, the honey lime dressing that adds a bit of a bite to the leaves — and it’s a cinch to make!

INGREDIENTS (serves one, generously, 2 as a side portion)
2-3 cups of arugula
5-6 black mission figs, quartered
2 tsp fresh lime juice (don’t you even think about buying that lime in a bottle nonsense!)
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp pistachio oil
Salt/pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS: Whisk the lime juice, honey, oil, salt/pepper and coat the leaves/figs generously.
