Blueberry Arugula Salad

June 5, 2011

This may be the most delicious salad I have ever tasted:

blueberry arugula salad

Salad ingredients: arugula, blueberries, mozzarella, pine nuts. 

Dressing ingredients: red wine vinegar, mustard, honey, coriander, salt, pepper, and olive oil.

First, whisk the vinegar, mustard, honey, coriander, salt and pepper together. Then mix in the oil. Then toast the nuts in a small pan on a medium heat until lightly browned. Rinse the lettuce and berries. Place the arugula on a plate, or plates if you are sharing. I grew the arugula in my garden, and it has a hearty – almost nutty – flavor. AMAZING!

Okay, then slice the mozzarella and arrange it on the bed of lettuce. Then grab a handful of blueberries and the nuts (with care if HOT!) and sprinkle them on the growing salad.

Drizzle the dressing on as you like. You’re going to be getting tangy and sweet and salty flavors that are perfect with the berries and mild cheese and nuts. All of those tastes held up by a bunch of fresh arugula might make you want to kiss Mother Nature’s butthole. No hyperbole.

Summery, delicious happiness,

    I love arugula. I never imagined I might actually GROW it in the backyard! I’m not sure why this never occurred to me – I grow other things. We have squash, tomatoes, zucchini, beets, asparagus, basil, rosemary, and cilantro out there this year.

    The salad looks and sounds amazing. I will definitely try it. Thanks for the recipe!
