The topper on this salad gives more than a crunch! Walnuts are one of the few plant-based sources of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids!

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon minced red onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

4 cups chopped fresh radicchio
2 cups fresh arugula
