Sweet Peach Arugula Salad

Serving Size: 1



  • 2 generous handfuls arugula
  • ~1/8 c chopped fresh cilantro (more or less to taste)
  • 1/2 large nectarine, sliced or diced
  • 1 small or 1/2 large avocado, sliced
  • sprinkle of hemp hearts


  • 1/4 cup avocado oil (or olive oil)
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • ~1-2 Tbsp. honey (to thicken and mellow the vinegar, may omit to reduce carbs, if omitting I suggest more of a 2:1 ratio of the oil to vinegar)


  1. Toss arugula and cilantro in bowl so cilantro is evenly distributed.
  2. Top with nectarine and avocado.
  3. Sprinkle with hemp hearts (or chopped nuts for more crunch).
  4. Drizzle with dressing.

Chef’s Note:

The dressing will probably make more than needed, so you can double the salad portion of the recipe or use the leftover as a marinade or dressing for a salad another day. And if you don’t like cilantro, other herbs like basil, dill, or mint would also pair well.
