Arugula, Green Beans and Oranges…oh my!


Quick, easy, and tasty…that’s what I want, not only during the summer, but a lot of the time.  Cooking Light had a bunch of great, quick & simple recipes in one of their recent issues and I have been trying several of them.  They are good!  One that I made recently had my favorite lettuce — ARUGULA!  Then, green beans and oranges.  I also threw some grapefruit in there.  The official name of the recipe is Green Bean, Arugula, and Clementine Toss.

Salad2Ingredients

  • 2 (8-ounce) packages ready-to-cook fresh haricot verts (aka green beans)
  • 3 cups arugula
  • 2 clementines (I couldn’t find them loose — vs buying a whole box, which is why I used a ‘regular’ orange and then a grapefruit)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • (I added pepper, too)

Directions

Steam haricot verts in the microwave according to package directions; halve beans crosswise. Or, steam them on the stove.  I also forgot to cut them afterwards.
