Tat Soi and Arugula Salad with Mustard Dressing ~ Raw Food Recipe

serves 1 ~ $2.79 per serving

 
 
 
 
 
10 leaves tat soi ($1.59)
6 leaves arugula ($.55)
2 green onions ($.10)
1 carrot ($.10)

1 tablespoon olive oil ($.10)
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar ($.10)
1 tablespoon agave ($.10)
1 clove garlic, pressed
1 tablespoon dijon mustard ($.15)

The tat soi and arugula are growing like gangbusters in cold frames right now. I love arugula, but I'd never heard of tat soi until I planted it this year. It's in the brassica family, like broccoli, and has fairly large, spoon shaped leaves. It's a bit spicy, too ... kind of like broccoli sprouts. It's a nutritional powerhouse, an full of antioxidants. Also, all of the brassicas may prevent breast cancer by increasing the liver's ability to metabolize estrogen.

This is a pretty simple salad. Toss together the greens and onion, and carrot. Whisk together the remaining ingredients and pour over salad.
