Strawberry Arugula Salad
I have to be honest...I’m not a huge fan of salads. In restaurants they’re usually overpriced, drenched in dressing, and loaded with calories. At home they’re usually made in an attempt of a diet so they’re lettuce heavy leaving me hungry and counting down the minutes until my next meal. Now with all that being said, trust me when I say this salad is delicious! It’s packed with flavor and is surprisingly filling; try it as a side or main dish.
Ingredients:--Makes about 8 servings
1 pint strawberries, rinsed, hulled, and thinly sliced.
4 Tb olive oil
½ tsp pepper
1 cup toasted slivered almonds
4 Tb Balsamic Vinegar (divided)
½ tsp Sea Salt
4 bunches baby Arugula, washed, dried, and trimmed
If you’re unable to find toasted slivered almonds, just toss in a nonstick pan over medium heat and stir until browned.
In a large bowl, toss the Strawberries and ½ of the Balsamic
In a small bowl whisk together remaining Balsamic, Sea Salt, Pepper, and Olive Oil. Add mixture to the strawberries.
Add Arugula and Almonds to the Strawberry mixture and toss until thoroughly mixed.
