Roasted Thyme Potatoes and Arugula Salad with Black Garlic-Mustard Vinaigrette
Salads are part and parcel of modern day life-style and I am hard core salad admirer. I make salads with quest of making veggies taste better and different every time and I learnt it hard way that to eat healthy salads you need variety, freshness and deliciousness too. Does this sounds too much to handle? Well, then you have to try this comforting, packed with health and freshness, potato and arugula salad, all-in-one package.

Roasted Thyme Potatoes and Arugula Salad with Black Garlic-Mustard Vinaigrette
First-time black garlic users, I must mention that even though "black Garlic" name sounds very Strong, taste is not that strong (I recommend 1-3 cloves per preparation). Black garlic helps lower the cholesterol and is good for digestion. So check it out, google about it and buy some to add to your health pack.

Crispy thyme potatoes with mustard-lemon vinaigrette has taken this salad from a plain arugula-cherry tomato salad to a - flavor in every bite salad. I used finger potatoes (to make my life easier), no peeling needed, just slice in half or quarter per your liking (I prefer quarter bites). Top the pan roasted potatoes on salad when they are still warm and top with mustard, black garlic and lemon vinaigrette.

In each bite, you will get sweet cherry tomato, spicy arugula or shallot, crispy potato with thyme perfume.

Enjoy good health one bowl at-a-time.
