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.
- 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)
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.
Cool 5 minutes; toss with arugula, clementine segments, olive oil, vinegar, and salt.
