Tired of regular lettuce? Add some glamour to your salad routine with peppery baby arugula! Not only is our baby arugula and sprout salad recipe packed full of vitamins and minerals, it looks sexy on a plate and tastes great too!
We prepared a honey mustard dressing with a dash of lime for a bright, citrusy pop of flavor. Both the mustard and honey serve as an emulsifier to help the dressing come together—remember that trick if you want to experiment with homemade dressings of you own.
This dish is a real winner when entertaining guests but it’s a great meal for one or two if you’re trying to keep it light.

- 2 cups baby arugula
- 4 cups mixed sprouts, we used broccoli and bean sprouts and microgreens

Whole grain honey mustard is great in homemade dressing because the flavor is so refined!
