Ingredients 

  • 200 g cherry tomatoes
  • ½ cucumber
  • 200 g arugula
  • 4 tablespoon pitted Kalamata or black olives
  • 4 tablespoon raw or sprouted buckwheat groats optional

For the dressing

  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup or agave syrup
  • 1 teaspoon dried mint or ½ bunch of fresh mint
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 pinch of salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Wash the cherry tomatoes and the cucumber. Optionally peel the cucumber. Cut the tomatoes in half and the cucumber in half, then in slices.
  • Wash and drain the arugula. Add it to a salad bowl with the tomatoes, cucumber and pitted olives.
  • Make the dressing by mixing the olive oil, balsamic vinegar and maple syrup with the mint and oregano. Pour it over the salad and toss until everything is coated.
  • If desired, sprinkle with buckwheat groats for some crunch.

Notes

To take the salad on the go, store the dressing in a separate container and add it right before serving.
