"Green" Salad

This ingredients in this salad have a unifying theme: their color. Everything in this salad is green, making it not just a green salad but a "green" salad.

"Green" Salad

3 cups loosely packed baby arugula
1 cucumber, peeled, quartered, seeded and sliced
2/3 cup green grapes, seedless, halved
1/2 cup shelled, unsalted pistachios
Fresh mint, about 15-20 leaves, roughly torn
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 tbsp. white wine vinegar
1 tsp. honey
Salt and fresh ground black pepper

Combine arugula, cucumber, grapes, pistachios and mint in a large salad bowl. Whisk together oil, vinegar, honey, salt and pepper. Pour dressing over salad and toss to combine.
