Fall is in full swing and we’re not above loving that infamous “basic” beverage that explodes EVERYWHERE this time of year: the sweet and spiced PSL (aka: Pumpkin Spice Latte).
Since the Starbuck’s version, that must be credited for bringing this drink such fame, is sooo full of sugar and other mysterious-not-good-for-your-poor-body ingredients we decided to take matters into our own hands and make a version with real ingredients that’s also WAY LESS sugar and even Paleo-friendly!!
(Makes 3 to 4 servings pending on mug size 😉 and it’s maybe a little too easy to consume all on your own if you’re not careful)
Today’s new recipe, Bacon Arugula Salad with Spiced Apple Chunks, comes from our Autoimmune menu in Dinner Answers!
Bacon Arugula Salad with Spiced Apple Chunks
1 pound bacon, chopped
1 cup sliced apple
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon honey
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
4 cups arugula lettuce
1/2 small red onion, sliced
1/4 cup sliced radish
2 tablespoons full fat coconut milk
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon maple syrup
In a large skillet over medium heat, add bacon. Cook for 10 minutes, until bacon is brown and very crispy. Transfer bacon to a paper towel lined plate and discard all but 1/2 tablespoon of bacon fat from skillet.
Reduce heat to low. To the skillet, add the apple, cinnamon, honey and salt and pepper. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
In a large bowl, layer the arugula, onion, radish, bacon and apple.
In a small bowl, whisk the remaining 4 ingredients (coconut milk through maple syrup) and sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Pour the dressing over the salad. Toss and serve.
