Blueberry Arugula Salad with Orange-Mint Dressing

A few years ago I was introduced to arugula and it has been serious love ever since. If you haven’t tried it I would highly recommend it! It has a subtle flavor that adds an extra little something to any salad.

My dinner party salad starts with arugula as the base and is topped with fresh spring flavors: orange and blueberry, creamy goat cheese and almonds. But I have to say – it is the orange-mint dress that really pulls this salad together. Enjoy!
