Life is an art, it’s all about contrast. Peaks need valleys, darkness needs light, and sweet strawberries need spicy, peppery arugula. It’s the differences that really make the best of things stand out.
There’s no simpler way to enjoy the beauty of life’s contrasts than by making up a bowl of this delicious yummy strawberry arugula salad!
The heart of this recipe is, of course, in the dressing, and you can apply this dressing to any other combination of greens and veggies. This variation has the advantage of being minimalist and simple, highlighting the peppery sweetness of strawberry and arugula. The balsamic vinaigrette it quite sweet and will go well with pretty much any type of salad. Pomegranates and/or nuts would be a fun variation.
Another great benefit of this recipe is that it provides you with the chance to say “arugula” a bunch. Definitely worth doing. If you’re sharing the salad with a friend or partner, this benefit is increased significantly.
This delightful fruity salad is a great way to get yourself into the spring mindset! Super easy to make, this strawberry cauliflower salad is also easy on the wallet. And with all that money you’ve saved, you can get out there and enjoy the fresh new season!
Salads are as much about texture as they are about taste. The cauliflower adds that crunchy dimension you often get from nuts (or pomegranates!). But feel free to add some chopped almonds or walnuts in there too, if you’re looking for a little more crunch or some extra protein.
The best part of this recipe though is the dressing. There’s nothing like a good salad dressing. Oil and vinegar goes a long way, but sometimes you want to add a little sweetness to your life. The combination of onion, garlic and vinegar with strawberries and agave syrup makes for an unforgettable, tangy dressing that you’ll probably want to put on all sorts of salads. And that raw garlic isn’t just for flavor!
Because this salad is so sweet, chef Lisa Viger even recommends having it for breakfast. Talk about versatility: a strawberry cauliflower salad that can be had for breakfast, lunch, or dessert. You might even be tempted to make some for dinner!
