Squash & Arugula Salad with Orange Ginger Dressing

I’ve been on a recipe sharing kick lately, but it is the season for cooking and I have come across some good one, so I had to share this one as well.  As you know, I love squash. And Arugula. So what could be better than putting them together? Nothing, it’s that simple, so when ELR posted this recipe, it went to the top of my make list. I like to think it’s pretty healthy, and it’s not that bad. Give it a try. You will love it.
