Strawberry Arugula Salad Recipe with Basil and Mint
Servings: 4 people
A perfect summer salad idea. Use the herbs like lettuce, and the macerated strawberries actually create the dressing. Ready in less than 15 minutes!
- 4 oz arugula
- 1 cup fresh basil lightly packed
- ½ cup fresh mint lightly packed
- 8 oz strawberries hulled and sliced
- 1 tbsp honey
- 2 ½ tbsp lemon juice
- zest of one lemon
- 2 tbsp olive oil to drizzle over salad
- sea salt
Hull and slice strawberries and place them in a bowl.
Add lemon zest, lemon juice and honey. Stir to combine and allow to macerate for 10 minutes, or until the juices are running from the strawberries.
Place arugula in a large bowl. Tear the basil and mint into smaller pieces (small leaves can remain whole). Toss herbs and arugula gently together with your hands.
Top the salad mixture with the strawberries, making sure to drizzle all of the juices over the greens. Drizzle the salad with some good quality olive oil, season with a pinch of sea salt and serve.
