Arugula and Strawberry Salad

I like to think of this recipe as a new and improved version of the salad I created last summer (see recipe here). As you can see, I’m a huge fan of strawberries and take full advantage of their peak seasons! I threw this salad together (minus the strawberries) when I was creating a three-course meal for Father’s Day (see here) and it has since become our favorite! So, I figured why not share this simple, yet utterly delicious recipe.


4 cups arugula

1 cup halved strawberries

5 tablespoons raw pumpkin seeds

3 tablespoons parmesan cheese

1/2 cup olive oil

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1/2 lemon

Salt + pepper (to taste)


Rinse arugula and strawberries and pat dry

Toss arugula, pumpkin seeds and 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese in large bowl

In a small container, mix olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper

(tip: keep the dressing in a separate container until right before you serve the salad so as to prevent the greens from becoming soggy)

Sprinkle the strawberries on top, and then the rest of the parmesan

Again, such a simple recipe, but one that is now a staple in our family’s kitchen.

If you recreate this dish, I’d love to see it! Feel free to tag me on Instagram to share.

My first IGTV video (more info here) will be showcasing this recipe and will be uploaded soon!
