Arugula Salad with Berries
Summer=berry season=me eating lots of berries.
My mom and I came back from our weekly trip to Costco this weekend with 2 huge boxes of strawberries and blueberries. How could the 4 of us possibly finish eating all that fruit?! Well, knowing me and my obsession with berries, it actually wasn’t going to be much of a challenge. Even though they are incredible eating just plain, they can add a lot to other foods like salads and desserts!
Arugula has a slight bitter taste so to offset this, just add some strawberries and blueberries for some sweetness. For a dressing, you can easily make balsalmic vinegar dressing that goes along perfectly with the salad. This is a simple recipe that can be put together in minutes!
