Did you know?

Did you know arugula is a cruciferous vegetable? It’s in the same family as broccoli and cauliflower, and as such, shares many of the same health benefits. Sulforaphane, a compound in these veggies that contributes to their bitter taste, has been linked to cancer-fighting properties. More than that, leafy greens like arugula can help lower glucose levels, increase insulin sensitivity, and help prevent stress-induced oxidative changes in people with diabetes. All the more reason to use it in your salads!

If you enjoyed this delicious salad, why not try a Chicken Arugula Salad for another great use of this leafy green? You could even shake things up with a crispy Jicama Salad, or you can even try a new flavor with this salad thanks to our Thousand Island Dip and Dressing. Enjoy, and be sure to share and let us know what you think!

    Would substituting salmon for shrimp work? I can no longer eat salmon; it leaves a very weird aftertaste in my mouth

      Hi There,
      You could absolutely substitute salmon for shrimp! All you would need to do is swap out the amount of salmon in oz. for the same amount of shrimp in oz. Just make sure to pre cook your shrimp or buy it already cooked. I think the flavors would still work great together. Let us know how it turns out!
