Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.
