Arugula strawberry salad is everything we want in a summer meal: Fast, easy, and super fresh.
This peppery arugula strawberry salad is super uncomplicated. Greens, avocado, strawberries, and red onion, tossed together with the balsamic vinaigrette and enjoyed with bites of crispy grilled salmon. Optionally you can add pistachios and/or feta. Add/substitute/make changes as desired!
Since garlic chives are a regular item in Harvest2U’s harvest boxes, it makes an excellent substitute for chives.
Arugula is a lesser-known cruciferous vegetable that provides many of the same benefits as the same family, such as kale, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts.
