Time for a fresh and simple salad now that fall baby greens are coming in! This one is tasty, and includes a recipe for a white balsamic vinaigrette that goes great with the spinach and zesty arugula. You will find fresh spinach, arugula, red bell peppers, and garlic at the market this week!

  • 2 ounces fresh spinach
  • 2 ounces fresh arugula
  • 1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded, and chopped
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled


  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 medium clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Toss the spinach, arugula, cucumber, pepper, onion, and feta cheese together in a large bowl.

Add the dressing ingredients together in a jar, place the lid on the jar and shake vigorously until well combined.

Serve the salad with dressing on the side.


The recipe makes about 3/4 cup of dressing, more than you need for the salad. You can probably get away with halving the dressing recipe if you don’t want any leftover.
