Try this hearty and healthy Mediterranean-style salad.


1/2cup sliced canned artichokes, drained and rinsed
1/4cup quartered pitted green or Kalmata olives
1/2cup quartered cherry or grape tomatoes
4cups arugula
1/4cup crumbled feta cheese
For Dressing
1tablespoon white wine vinegar
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1pinch brown sugar (optional)
3tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1tablespoon water, or to taste


1. In a bowl whisk together the vinegar, salt, pepper, and sugar if using, until the salt has dissolved.


2. Gradually beat in the olive oil until well blended. Taste for sharpness. If the dressing is too sharp, beat in some water, a little at a time, until your dressing is to your taste.

4. Just before serving, toss everything together to combine.
