Arugula salad

In this recipe, we combined the two complementary flavours of dried cranberries and feta cheese, with the earthiness of spinach and arugula. To get a satisfying crunch with each bite, we have added caramelized walnuts and sunflower seeds. Toss this up in some balsamic, and you know you’ve got a sure-shot winner in your hands.
