Spinach & Arugula Cranberry Orzo Salad


This salad is absolutely unreal. And sadly, we ate all the goods before we had a chance to take a picture. So at the end of the week when I realized I forgot to document this fabulous salad, I faked a photo with the few leftovers I had (arugula was gone at that point). This is a cheap and easy dish anyone can throw together. Foolproof and delicious 🙂

1 package whole wheat orzo, cooked

2 cups baby spinach

2 cups baby arugula

1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved

1 cup fresh parsley, minced

3/4 cup dried cranberries

3/4 cup raw almonds, chopped

1/2 cup olive oil

3 tbsp lemon juice

Zest of 1 lemon

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

1 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

  • Toss orzo, spinach, arugula, parsley, almonds, tomatoes and cranberries together
  • Stir together oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, mustard, salt and pepper
  • Pour into orzo mix and stir well
