| June/July 2009

Who said strawberries were just for dessert? Add them to a spring salad or early summer salad for a dash of color, such as in this strawberry arugula salad. 

4 cups baby arugula or other flavorful spring greens
1 cup strawberries, sliced
2 ounces Parmesan cheese, shaved (about 1/2 cup)
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 tbsp aged (richer) balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Combine arugula, strawberries, cheese, salt and pepper in a salad bowl. Drizzle vinegar and oil over the salad. Toss gently and serve at once. For variety, add toasted hazelnuts or try goat cheese in place of Parmesan. Serves 2.
