I made this salad as an appetizer and it was sooo good! I didn't have the Parmesan, so I used what was on hand - mozzarella that was cubed. I'm not too wild about nuts and omitted the walnuts but it was still delicious. As for the dressing, I used a strawberry vinaigrette (sparingly) which really awakened the strawberries in the salad. The peppery arugula and savory mozzarella were wonderful to experience for such and easy salad to combine and devour!
Arugula & Strawberry Salad
A rich source of iron and vitamins A and C, arugula is nonetheless in desperate need of balancing—here, with aged balsamic vinegar, walnuts and strawberries, another one of springtime's jewels.
6 Reviews for Arugula & Strawberry Salad
A sweet and sour poppy seed dressing is great with this salad as well! Cape Cod makes a good version of this dressing but you can make it yourself too.
I love this simple salad. Aged balsamic is perfect with the peppery bite of arugula and the sweetness of strawberries. This is also delicious with manchego or goat cheese.
Delicious! Although I love arugula, I used a combination of baby spinach and arugula to appeal to more people, and the salad was gone in a flash. I also used regular balsamic vinegar that I reduced per the tip. Loved it.
Absolutely delicious. Simple and fresh and yummy!
