  • 3 tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted Pistachios (roughly chopped)
  • 2 tablespoon Honey
  • 2 large bunches of Arugula with thick stems discarded (approximately 8 cups)

Line a small baking sheet with nonstick foil. Heat a small skillet on medium and toss pistachios until lightly toasted (about 2 to 3 minutes). Add honey and a pinch of salt and let bubble for 1 minute. Remove from heat and immediately transfer to prepared baking sheet to cool.
