Orange-Walnut Salad From Giant Eagle


Sweet oranges contrast with bitter of arugula and earthy chopped walnuts. A little bit of blue cheese adds creamy saltiness.

1 cup arugula

1 cucumber, peeled, quartered lengthwise, seeds removed and chopped

1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion

2 navel oranges, peeled and chopped

2 tablespoons chopped walnuts

1 tablespoon walnut oil

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

2 ounces blue cheese
