  1. Prep Your Lotus Bowl base:
    • Arrange a generous bed of arugula as the base in the Lotus Bowl.
    • Add the thinly sliced cucumber to one side for a refreshing crunch.
    • Nestle vibrant mandarin orange segments in another section, creating a burst of sweetness.
  2. Prepare the Ingredient Cups:
    • In the first container, place a portion of creamy goat cheese. The Lotus Bowl's separate containers ensure the cheese won't compromise the crunch of the salad until it's time to mix.
    • The second container is reserved for hazelnuts. Sprinkle them over the salad just before eating for that satisfying nutty texture.
    • The third container holds the creamy poppy seed dressing, ready to be drizzled over the salad when you're ready to indulge.
  3. Assemble Your Salad:
    • When lunchtime arrives, combine the arugula, cucumber, and mandarin oranges in the Lotus Bowl.
    • Sprinkle goat cheese and hazelnuts from the ingredient cups.
    • Drizzle the creamy poppy seed dressing over the top and toss gently to coat each bite with a delectable blend of flavors.
