I love food that makes me nostalgic for travel. This combination of greens, onions, and cheese are hearty and colorful. It reminds me of a winter trip that I embarked upon the Sonoma coastline several years ago. In Santa Rosa, we stopped at a rustic restaurant that served salads similar to this.

With minimal prep time, the Arugula & Caramelized Onion Salad is great for weekly food prep or a family dinner. As long as you store the salad dressing separately from the salad mix, this is good for a few days after preparation.

Yields 6 servings of Arugula and Caramelized Onion Salad.

THE PREPARATION

  • 3 cups baby arugula
  • 1 teaspoon Swerve
  • ¼ cup field greens
  • 1/8 cup almonds, slivered
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • ¼ cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
