Rejuvenating Arugula Salad

This salad is inspired by Sardinia, the Italian island that has some of the longest living people on the planet. The mix of sweet tomatoes, seasoned sardines and arugula will transport you to a seaside town leaving you refreshed. This salad is packed with heart-healthy and energizing choices.

A pinch       sea salt, unrefined
1 tbsp         organic olive oil or lemon flavoured fish oil
2 tbsp         lemon juice
Optional garnish:

½ large       avocado, sliced

2. Divide and layer tomatoes and sardines and place on top of arugula.
3. Combine lemon juice, oil, salt and Veganaise in a small bowl until well mixed.
4. Pour dressing over salad, top with garnishes and serve. Makes 2 salads.

I bought the grapeseed oil version - do you still recommend it, or feel that the soy-free is better?
