Blue Cheese and Bacon Arugula Salad Recipe

This homemade blue cheese and bacon arugula salad recipe is one of my favorites! I can literally eat this salad for lunch every day of the week without tiring of it. It’s basically a spin off a blueberry and bacon arugula salad recipe at one of my favorite restaurants. However, as I am unable to find a blueberry vinaigrette anywhere and am not talented enough in the food department to make my own, I used a raspberry vinaigrette instead.

This recipe is also great with a mix of power greens – and I do eat it both ways depending what’s on sale – but I love the mustard like taste of baby arugula without any other greens or lettuces.

Homemade Blue Cheese and Bacon Arugula Salad Recipe

To create this Blue Cheese and Bacon Arugula Salad Recipe simply fill a bowl with organic baby arugula and top with real bacon bits – preferably you’ve made them yourself – blue cheese, and just enough raspberry vinaigrette to lightly coat all of the arugula. I typically combine the ingredients in a plastic bowl with a lid and shake to coat. Remember less is more when adding the vinaigrette. Depending on the size of your salad you’ll likely only need one to two tablespoons of vinaigrette.

Now that your salad is made, enjoy!

Easy Homemade Pita Pizza Recipe

Ever wondered what to do with that tiny bit of leftover spaghetti sauce? Our solution was to make homemade pita pizzas!
It’s inevitable. You make spaghetti and sauce and once dinner’s over it seems you’ve either made too much sauce or too much spaghetti. In our case, we still have leftover pizza sauce. So rather than have spaghetti again and have to buy another jar of sauce, Scott and I used our leftover spaghetti sauce as a pizza sauce for some homemade pita pizzas! Here’s what we used:
Pack of 10 Mini White Bread Pitas (King of Pitas Brand available from The Fresh Market)
Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, sliced
Red Pepper, sliced and seeds removed
Baby Portabella Mushrooms, sliced
Deli Sandwich Pepperonis, sliced
Yellow Onion, sliced
Leftover Spaghetti Sauce (or flavored tomato sauce)
Fresh garlic, finely minced
Fresh oregano and basil, finely chopped
Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper
Place up to six pitas on a baking sheet and spread spaghetti sauce on top of the pitas. Add slices of mozzarella cheese. Then top with desired ingredients and bake at 350 degrees F until the cheese has melted.
We made two different pizzas. One all veggie and one meat. My pizzas were topped with pepperoni, mushrooms, garlic, oregano, and basil. Scott’s were topped with peppers, onions, garlic, mushrooms, oregano, and basil. Both had light salt and pepper on top. These were by far the BEST pizzas we’ve had anywhere in a long time. Definitely better than eating out or ordering in! The fresh ingredients really made the biggest difference.
How do you use up leftover spaghetti sauce at your house?
