This salad isn’t just beautiful – it’s delicious too. I just had to try this Strawberry Poppyseed Vinaigrette, and the combination of arugula and berries seemed like the perfect place. I’m so glad I did, it was wonderful. The vinaigrette is incredibly easy to make – just stick everything in the blender. I ended up with plenty leftover. If you’re looking to make this a main dish for lunch or dinner, just add a half a chicken breast for protein. You can also mix arugula and spinach instead of just arugula. Give this salad a try, you won’t be disappointed.
