Arugula Salad with Mint Chia Dressing

A few weeks ago you may have seen on Snapchat and Instagram that we were in Jamaica at our absolute favorite resort, Round Hill. This was our second stay there, and it was just as fabulous as our first stay!

The understated luxury, quaint beauty, and small size of the resort are some of my favorite features, aside from the sunsets (see below), and the amazing, local and fresh cuisine. They even have Billy’s garden where they pick tons of their own fresh produce each morning!

Round Hill Resort

Each morning we started our day with a Tropical Green Smoothie and a big ‘ol breakfast plate. One of the breakfast highlights was the Round Hill salad. Fresh arugula from their garden, slivered almonds, segmented oranges, and the best Mint Chia Dressing.

For lunch they start you off with fresh plantain chips and their homemade tapenade (ah-mazing, we took two jars home), and I ordered the chopped jerk chicken salad one MULTIPLE days. So fresh and delicious!

My fabulous friends at Round Hill said I could s hare with you the Mint Chia Dressing since I adored it SO MUCH.
