  • 5 cups arugula
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 6 stalks of asparagus, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 zucchini, thinly sliced or peeled into ribbons
  • ¼ a red onion, thinly sliced

  3. In a large mixing bowl combine arugula, yellow bell pepper, asparagus, zucchini, and onion. Toss to combine well.
  4. In a smaller bowl make the dressing by whisking the JOI nut base, orange juice, garlic powder, sesame seeds, salt, and pepper.
  5. Toss the dressing in the salad and top with extra sesame seeds. Served immediately. Enjoy!
