Strawberry Salad

So if you checked in yesterday you probably saw that we’ve been avoiding the kitchen quite a bit this week. With the insane summer heat and just off a week-long trip in Montana, we’ve been kind of taking it easy with our kitchen adventures and reverting back to some easy favorites. This Sweet and Tangy Strawberry Salad and I go way back. It was one of the first recipes I bookmarked when I made the goal to eat fresh, natural, and healthier.

I love this salad like its my job. It is quintessentially summer. Sweet, tangy, full of fresh greens and summer strawberries, what else needs to be said? Oh yeah, the recipe:

Ingredients:

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 dash Worcestershire sauce
1 quart strawberries
4-6 cups arugula, chopped into bite size pieces (you could also use two hearts of Romaine lettuce)
slivered almonds (optional)

Directions:

  1. In a bowl, mix the vinegar, sugar, oil, paprika, and Worcestershire sauce. Cover, and refrigerate at least 6 hours.
  2. In a bowl, toss the strawberries and arugula. Mix with the dressing just before serving.

Yes, it really is just that easy. Enjoy!
