Arugula and papaya salad with ginger dressing

20120823-223026.jpg

This is a simple and easy salad for those days when you feel like skipping a meal and replacing it with a light, meatless option to get some detox going. Specially after summer holidays, when we indulge too much in bacon and eggs, dips and lots of carbs.

The thing is that arugula, combined with the sweetness of papaya and a spicy ginger dressing, makes up for a feast of flavors. Add just a piece of 7 grain bread and you’ll feel fed.
