Arugula Salad with Garbanzo Beans and Roasted Red Pepper

We love arugula salads for the peppery flavor. They go well with most dinners and this particular variation is one of our favorites.

Terry's dressings are famous for their flavor and originality as you will soon find out!



8 cups arugula

2 cups garbanzo beans

1 cup roasted red peppers, juliened


1 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/2 cup regular balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup "best quality" thick balsamic vinegar (such as the "Essenza" that we carry)

1 tablespoon fresh garlic, finely minced

1 tablespoon agave nectar

2 teaspoons dry oregano

2 teaspoon dijon mustard

1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt

1 teaspoon black pepper


Place all dressing ingredients except olive oil into food processor or blender. combine well then stream in olive oil slooowly.

To serve: drizzle dressing in the bottom of a large bowl. Add arugula, garbanzos, and peppers. Toss, add more dressing and toss again.

Plate salad and top with your choice of grilled seafood then one more drizzle of dressing to finish. Serves 6. Enjoy!
