Simple Sexy Food Part 2: Arugula Parmesan Salad with Honey Vinaigrette

You can get all the ingredients at Trader Joes.

It’s so yummy and easy you’ll wonder if you could just eat this every day and if anyone else in the house would mind if that happened.

Here you go:

1/2 a bag of Arugula

Heirloom Cherry Tomatoes 5-6 chopped

Parmesan Cheese (the powdery kind) 1/4 c or less

Red Onion about 1/8th chopped

Sweet little bell peppers 2 or 3 chopped

Toasted sunflower seeds 1/8 c (if you by them raw you can do it yourself in the toaster oven just before serving)

Dressing (makes enough for 2 servings)

1/4 c. Apple Cider Vinegar

3/4 c. Olive Oil

1-2 TBSP. Honey

1-2 TBSP. Water

Salt & Pepper to Taste

Take all salad ingredients, chop bell peppers, tomatoes and onions. Sprinkle Parmesan on top.  Add Sunflower seeds.

Take all dressing ingredients and whisk until blended.  Drizzle over salad. Toss.

I used 1/2 my bag and ended up eating most of the salad part and had leftover tomatoes, onion and dressing in the bottom. I just added more arugula and had more salad. Enjoy.

As my husband can attest, I can come up with some really delicious things to eat.  When I was a vegetarian, I ate so many salads that I almost never eat raw vegetables anymore. And they don’t always make things so sexy later. But this recipe incorporates raw and cooked, so things are a little more, yummy…

This recipe is simple, easy and all of the ingredients can be purchased at Trader Joes. If you follow this recipe, it makes about 4 servings and they run about 450 calories each. Yeah.

Sexy Veggie Wraps

1/2 package Firm High Protein Tofu cut into strips

Brown Rice Tortillas

3 TBSP Peanut Butter

1-2 tsp of Chili Sauce depending on how hot you like it

Red Bell Pepper

1/2 Red Onion

2 Tbps Olive Oil




Sauce: Take the peanut butter and chili sauce mix together. Add more or less chili depending on how spicy you want it. Set it aside.

Heat olive oil in pan. Saute chopped Red Bell Pepper and Onion, you can add salt if you want, saute until soft then place strips of tofu in and begin to brown in pan.  Once they’re almost done take them off heat. Heat up the Brown Rice Tortillas, they work better warm and when almost finished, spread your sauce mixture on the tortilla in the middle. Add the sauteed vegetables, 1/4 of the avocado, lettuce and sprouts. Wrap, and enjoy.
