Arugula Salad with Orange Miso Dressing

This salad happened by accident, but it is a happy accident. The slightly sweet dressing coating the spicy arugula is a great combination. The salad utilizes the citrus which is flooding into the stores right now. I use good ole navel oranges for this recipe, but I am sure any sweet citrus would hit the spot.
This makes enough dressing for 2-3 salads, depending on how big you make them. We usually use about 4-5 cups of greens in a dinner salad. We rarely have leftovers.

I like to mix this up in a small mason jar. Just shake before using.
Orange Miso Dressing
2 heaping teaspoons white miso paste.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/2 cup orange juice, fresh squeezed prefered
1 tablespoon salt

Shake well until combined.

Arugula Salad Serves 2 -3
4-5 cups arugula
2 green onions, chopped finely

Toss to combine. Eat immediately.
