This fresh arugula and feta salad recipe is dressed with a tangy strawberry vinaigrette made from a base of fresh pureed strawberries. If you can't find the sweetest strawberries, don't worry—strawberries with a little more pucker are wonderfully suited to salads, salad dressings and vinaigrette recipes, as we use them here.

This was very flavorful. Wonder if previous rater used supermarket berries? I was fortunate enough to have locally grown berries from our farm market. Also fresh arugula. We have salad every night so am always looking for something a little different. Added pea shoots and a little cress from mkt as well. Very good! A little work but worth it!

Good not sensational Made just the dressing portion today (put on salad with goat cheese, red onion, almonds, peas, and strawberries). This was good but not something I would go to all the trouble to make again. It fell a little short in the flavor department and I can whip up a balsamic vinaigrette much faster with a better flavor result. Pros: Seasonal, fresh, light Cons: Not super flavorful, several ingredients
