Arugula and Feta Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette


After several weeks of being self-indulgent, it’s time to get back on track. Nothing like a salad with tasty dressing to get me there. This is from Eating Well. If the dressing is too thick, add a little bit of water to thin it, or oil of you are not watching what you eat, a tsp at a time.

2 c strawberries, hulled, divided
1 spring onion or scallion, trimmed
1 small clove garlic, minced
2 TBSP champagne vinegar
2 TBSP olive oil
1 TBSP fresh tarragon
1/2 tsp whole-grain mustard
salt and pepper
10 c arugula (about 5 ounces)
3/4 c crumbled feta cheese

Puree 4 strawberries and onion (or scallion) in a small food processor or blender until chopped. Add garlic, vinegar, oil, tarragon, mustard, salt and pepper; pulse until well combined.

Toss arugula and feta in a large bowl. Slice the remaining strawberries and add to the bowl. Toss the salad with the dressing.

Serves 4.
