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.
