Of the hodgepodge of millennial acronyms and puns that I’ve picked up on social media over the years, Fri-Yay might be my favorite of all. HAPPY FRI-YAY everyone! Let’s keep it easy with a simple, delish pizza dinner and a quick, healthy side like this Anytime Arugula Salad.
This recipe is sponsored by Freschetta
This colorful blend of peppery arugula, juicy cherry tomatoes, and colorful carrot ribbons (plus giant shavings of Parmesan because it’s a YAY kind of day) is flavorful enough to be worthy of the weekend, but easy enough so I never feel too tired to throw it together, even at the end of a long week when my heart is happy but my brain is saying hi, I’m done.
This salad recipe is flexible, fast, and makes me feel both wholesome and creative at the same time. It’s the sort of salad I wish I could order at every restaurant: veggie packed and crisp, with a vibrant lemon balsamic dressing that enhances the flavors of the other ingredients without making the salad wet or soggy. I’ve made assorted versions of this salad dozens of times over the years. It’s a back-pocket kind of recipe that gives me a quick, tasty way to add some green to our plates, and I enjoy it every time I make it. It’s also an ideal pairing with one of my Freschetta Pizzas!
