Figs and Arugula Salad

I would think Figs, Cherry Tomatos and Avocados would entice my son to the salad tonight, but he exclaimed “No more salads!  Only Green Smoothies for me!”  So, while our son finished his organic Peach and Spinach Smoothie, my hubby and I got to enjoy this all to ourselves.  Sometimes, I am kind of glad when there are extras for me!  This was delicious!

Sweet Balsamic Dressing

Mix all together:

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp maple syrup

1 tbspn balsamic vinegar

3 tbspns extra virgin olive oil

Salad

Place in a platter:

5 oz arugula

handful of quartered figs (you can also substitute with peaches)

handful of halved cherry tomatoes

an avocado, sliced

Drizzle dressing on salad.  Enjoy!
