Valentine's Recipe: Arugula, Avocado, and Citrus Salad

Set the mood on Valentine's Day with this recipe.  Avocados are known to be an aphrodisiac.  We made this delicious recipe on our Setting the Mood with Food episode.  It is light and tasty!

 2 cups arugula
 1 orange, cut into individual slices with the zest and pith removed
 2 oz Parmesan cheese, shaved
 1/2 medium avocado, sliced
 Salt and pepper to taste

Toss arugula with orange and avocado.


1 tablespoon Colman’s mustard
1/3 cup champagne vinegar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon orange juice
1/4 cup olive oil

Mix together some orange juice, mustard, a splash of vinegar, a bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Pour on salad.
