Arugula White Bean Salad with Grapes and Feta

© 2021 |

© 2021 |

This is basically a clean-out-fridge salad. Just throw whatever you have in the fridge or pantry in the bowl, toss it altogether and enjoy. This recipe is flexible enough that you can make ingredient changes based on what you have on hand. It is a healthy, quick, easy and full of delicious pesto flavour. And honestly, it's one of the favourites, plus that it uses up those bits and pieces from my over crowded fridge and reduce food waste.

Arugula PestoSalad
  • 50 g Walnuts
  • 2 Garlic cloves
  • 50 g Arugula, washed and dried
  • 30 g Freshly grated Parmesan, or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt
  • 120 ml Extra virgin olive oil, or as needed
  • 50 g Arugula
  • 250 g Cooked white beans
  • 10-12 Heirloom cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 100 g Black grapes
  • 50 g Feta
  1. In a food processor, combine the walnuts, garlic, arugula, Parmesan, and salt and pulse to blend. With the machine running, pour in the olive oil through the food tube in a slow, steady stream and process until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Taste and adjust the seasonings.
  2. Divide arugula, white beans, and quartered tomatoes onto two serving plates. Top with grapes and Feta. Generously drizzle the pesto over. Gently toss together and enjoy!

Looks nice, minus the grapes of course LOL
I had potato burek for lunch today (a sort of a filo pastry pie filled with potatoes and pepper) as we had snow today and was too tired from shoveling to cook anything so I just went to the bakery.

Your pesto must be tasty. Making salad out of what leftover is a great idea.

I tasted spaghetti with pesto over lunch yesterday in an uncle's house. Main ingredient was pistachio. I don't know what else he added to his pesto.

What a lovely salad. I love adding grapes to salads. Usually, I don't even add dressing because the grapes are so sweet and juicy. As usual, your presentation is beautiful .

Graciela Bacino 28/12/21 00:01

Exquisite combination.
It is also conducive to our summer season.
Thank you very much Angie !!
A hug.

Great salad! First off, I do need to clear out my fridge now that Christmas has passed. Secondly, I could use a salad after all that Christmas food!

David 28/12/21 19:56

Angie, That salad looks amazing! I crave a good salad but I'm really limited as leafy greens contradict one of my meds and I have to avoid them for the most part. Happy New Year, Big Daddy Dave

Królowa Karo 28/12/21 20:29

I love the taste of arugula! I could eat all salads with its addition every day!

Pedro 28/12/21 21:54
