arugula salad with crisp apples and blue cheese

Nothing against romaine lettuce, but I have always been a fan of arugula salad. The weather in New Jersey has been nothing shy of sweltering these past few days, and a crisp salad is perfect for those times when it’s just too hot to turn on the oven—or put in a lot of effort to cook a large meal. Tangy blue cheese and sweet apples make this tasty arugula salad hard to resist. I paired it with a sweet honey vinaigrette for even more flavor.
