Salata de spanac si rucola/ Spinach and arugula salad

(Please scroll down for English version)

Cum ziceam, am descoperit rucola si mi-a placut foarte mult. Si cum probabil ati observat, imi plac foarte mult salatele (si prajiturile, probabil asa se anuleaza caloriile).

Aceasta salata am mancat-o acum cativa ani la un restaurant, ca garnitura la pui la gratar. Daca imi aduc aminte bine, era un special al lui Tyler Florence. In loc de spanac, am folosit spanac si rucola amestecate, iar dressingul cu miere si mustar l-am facut acasa.

Cred ca acum va intrebati cum e dressingul cu miere si mustar, mai ales in combinatie cu branza feta. Chiar daca nu sunteti obisnuiti cu el, tot ce e posibil sa va obisnuiti. Este combinatie de dulce si sarat, poate ca atunci cand, copiii fiind, mancati branza cu paine si beati ceai dulce.
Iar daca va place branza albastra, sau branza de capra, asta este salata potrivita.


1 mana buna de frunze de spanac proaspete
1 mana de rucola
1/3 cana merisoare uscate (sau stafide)
1/2 cana branza feta sfaramata

Se amesteca verdeata cu merisoarele, se pune branza deasupra si se presara cu dressing.

Dressing de miere si mustar:

5 linguri de miere
4 linguri de mustar (Dijon daca aveti)
2 linguri de otet de orez (sau 1 lingura otet de vin)
4 linguri ulei de masline extra virgin
sare si piper dupa gust

Se amesteca mierea, mustarul si otetul, si se presara cu putina sare si piper. Amestecand cu telul, se pune uleiul putin cate putin, pana cand este tot incorporat.

Bun bun! :)

As I was saying, I discovered arugula, and I liked it a lot. And as you may be noticed, I liked salads a lot (I love cakes too; probably that’s how the calories balance).

I had this salad few years ago at this restaurant, as a side dish for grilled chicken. If I remember correctly, it was a Tyler Florence special. Instead using only spinach, I mixed spinach and arugula, and the honey mustard dressing I made it home.

If you like blue cheese or goat cheese, this is a nice salad to use it instead of feta.


1 handful fresh baby spinach
1 handful arugula
1/3 cup dried cranberries (or raisins)
½ cup feta cheese crumbles

Toss the greens and the cranberries, and sprinkle crumble feta on top. Drizzle the dressing and serve.

Homemade Honey mustard dressing:

5 tbsp honey
4 tbsp mustard (preferably Dijon)
2 tbsp rice vinegar
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper after taste

In a bowl mix the honey, mustard and vinegar, and sprinkle little salt and pepper. Whisk continuously and add the oil little by little, until is all incorporated.
