Nutty Arugula & Strawberry Salad
Kicking of second week of Valli’s Blogging Marathon with this super salad
Arugula-Strawberry Salad
The key to a green salad is FRESH greens – cannot emphasize that enough J
This is a salad that can be thrown together in a matter of minutes (much like any greens based salad) – Tastes delicious and even my salad-hater daughter has been converted to a fan – Salad is a food that needs to be exciting, with at least 2 things you can see in it that say, Hey, I could eat this salad for that ingredient – Or at least that is the philosophy that I subscribe to, not having been a much of a salad person either – give it to me cooked any day, I said until I learned to make a mean salad which was at once healthy and pleasurable – So try this one
Prep time: 10 minutes or less
For a single portion for Salad
2 cups FRESH Arugula (wash & spin dry or dab with paper towel)
2 strawberries diced from top to bottom
1tbsp walnut – crushed
1tsp peanuts (optional)
Grated Parmesan garnish (optional)
Nutty Arugula Salad
Here is a wonderful 10- minute recipe for a no or very, very, low fat dressing
Again this for a single portion of dressing
2tbsp Low fat yogurt
2tsp agave nectar
1/2tsp garlic flakes
Fresh ground pepper (pepper mill)
Whip these together and drizzle over salad
Ta-dah – gourmet salad good to gorge on
