Arugula and Papaya Salad with Pomegranate-Lime Vinaigrette

Arugula and Papaya Salad with Pomegranate-Lime Vinaigrette

Unusual fruit flavors are a great way to jazz up everyday salads like this one. Sweet, fresh papaya brings a summery twist to arugula, and a fresh pomegranate vinaigrette ensures that you're getting a good dose of cancer-fighting antioxidants with each bite.
