Strawberry and Arugula Salad

Crops:
Recipe Type:

Who said strawberries were just for dessert? Add them to a spring or early summer salad for a dash of color.

Ingredients

4 cups baby arugula or other flavorful spring greens 1 cup strawberries, sliced 2 ounces Parmesan cheese, shaved (about 1/2 cup) Salt and pepper, to taste 2 tbsp aged (richer) balsamic vinegar 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Preparation

Combine arugula, strawberries, cheese, salt and pepper in a salad bowl. Drizzle vinegar and oil over the salad. Toss gently and serve at once. For variety, add toasted hazelnuts or try goat cheese in place of Parmesan.

Strawberries in a salad, what an idea. Thanks Roger!
I never would have thought of that combination, but now I'm going to have to try it.
This is my favorite salad. I use goat cheese and add a little thinly sliced red onion. I sweeten the balsamic vinegar up a bit as well. You would never think that cheese, strawberries, onions and nuts would all go well in a salad together but it is so yummy. I highly recommend this salad.
