This peppery salad paired with a soft citrus viniagrette makes total sense! If you're feeling fancy, you can caramelize your walnuts in a skillet with 1 tbsp coconut oil, cinnamon, and a touch of sweetener (raw honey, raw agave, stevia)  to taste, but definitely not necessary.

6 cups organic arugula
1.5 cups raw walnuts
3 oz goat cheese, crumbled
½ cup chopped figs
2 tbsp chopped fresh mint
freshly ground black pepper

Orange viniagrette
juice of one orange
1 tsp ginger, minced
1 tsp raw honey
2 Tbsp organic plain yogurt
pinch sea salt
blend in food processor until smooth
