Arugula Salad with Avocado & Mustard Garlic Vinaigrette

arugula and avocado salad

If you’re like me, you just love avocado. And when it comes to avocado, there is nothing tastier than to pair it with some fresh greens and tangy vinaigrette.

This salad comes together fast and can be made in a hurry when pushed for time.

The vinaigrette is the perfect match for this salad. Even if you are not a garlic fan, this dressing is divine. It is pleasingly spunky and can be altered to fit your individual taste buds.
