Phase 2 because of the honey...if you use a sugar substitute, you could eat this in Phase 1. The peppery flavor of the arugula is balanced by the creamy, mild navy beans.

3 cups torn arugula leaves
1/2 cup chopped bottled roasted red bell peppers
1/3 cup vertically sliced red onion
1 (16-ounce) can navy beans, rinsed and drained

1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 garlic clove, minced

To prepare salad, combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl.
To prepare dressing, combine vinegar and the remaining ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk until blended. Pour over salad, tossing to coat.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 cup)
