Beach Bod Salad

Beach Bod Salad by Samantha Caplan, Certified Health Coach and the creator of Living Beauty
(Also one of my nearest and dearest friends that I hold close to my heart)

Samantha says, "One of the most beautifying of greens is arugula. Just a few of the benefits you'll receive include a cleansing of the skin from the inside out (due to the sulfur content) and a natural protection from the sun (from the beta-carotene)!"

Serves 1 - 2

1 bunch of arugula (depending on how hungry you are; start with 2 cups and go from there)
½ cup of washed mushrooms
½ sliced yellow pepper
¼ cup of walnuts
¼ of a large red onion sliced
2 tbsp Olive oil
Salt to taste

Optional - if you want a little sweet, add some raisins or other dried fruit of your choice; craisins, apricots, kiwi, or others

Toss all ingredients in a large bowl and enjoy!
*Tip - Use up all of your ingredients and make a salad for the next day, too...saves time!
