Arugula Salad with Creamy Chimichurri Dressing







Let’s talk salads!


If there is one thing you can never have too much of, it’s a good salad recipe! When thinking of the next best concept, visions of chimichurri sauce came to mind and I just knew, we had to turn this staple sauce into a dressing! This sauce is typically found served alongside skirt steak, but you can absolutely use it on just about anything. I love it on tacos, anything grilled, and it even makes a good dip! 

Dreading an involved recipe to make a salad dressing? This one can easily just be thrown into the blender! Bonus, this sauce is wonderful for salvaging veggies that are on their way out, is herbaceous, and packs a hint of heat that brings the flavors full circle. 




What’s great about this salad? There is so much you can do with it! You can enjoy it as is, add a protein, add some roasted nuts, cheese, it’s quick, easy, perfect for any season, packed with flavor, can easily be made in bulk, the dressing is sugar free, packs low oil, and you can throw this dressing on anything too!
