Strawberry Arugula Salad


  • 1 head lettuce, torn into bite sized pieces
  • 1 bunch of arugula, torn into bite sized pieces
  • 1 pint of strawberries, halved
  • 1/3 cup of sliced almonds
  • 3 tablespoons aged balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Place the lettuce, arugula, and strawberries in a large salad bowl and top with the almonds.  In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mustard, poppy seeds, salt and pepper.  Add the olive oil in a slow stream while whisking.  Toss the salad with the dressing immediately before serving.
