How To Make Arugula Salad with Sunshine Dressing

Prepare this simple and healthy arugula salad for dinner or brunch made with fresh and shredded Brussels tossed with a refreshing sunshine dressing.

Preparation: 25 minutes
Cooking: 5 minutes
Total: 30 minutes



  • 1lbbrussels sprouts
  • 6ozbaby arugula
  • cupspecan,halves or pieces
  • ½cupdried cherries,or cranberries, chopped
  • 4ozgoat cheese,crumbled
  • sunshine salad dressing


  1. To prepare the Brussels sprouts, first cut off the nubby ends and discard any discolored outer leaves. Then, carefully shred the sprouts with a sharp knife by hand, then roughly chop them for good measure.

  2. An alternative method is to shred them in a food processor using the slicing disk. Place the arugula and shredded Brussels in a large serving bowl and set it aside.

  3. Toast the pecans in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring often until they’re fragrant and starting to toast on the edges, for about 4 to 6 minutes.

  4. If using pecan halves, transfer them to a cutting board and chop them before adding them to the bowl.

  5. Add the chopped cherries and goat cheese to the bowl. Toss gently to combine.

  6. Once dressed, this salad will keep well in the refrigerator, covered for about two days.

Recipe Notes

For more longevity, store the salad dressing separately and toss individual salads with dressing just before serving. The salad will keep for about 5 days that way.
