Arugula, Strawberry, Mozzarella & Almond Salad

Arugula, Strawberry, Mozzarella & Almond Salad is quite a mouth-full to say, but trust me: it's very easy to put together!

The combination of slightly bitter arugula with sweet strawberries, milky/salty/smooth mozzarella and crunchy toasted almonds is great (if I say so myself).

And the finishing touch of balsamic glaze adds depth to this salad. You can have the salad as the start to your meal, or as a side to grilled chicken or fish.

There really isn't a recipe per say: Combine young arugula leaves with quartered strawberries, wedges of fresh mozzarella and toasted almond slivers. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and you are ready to eat!

I would not make this salad too far in advance as the nuts might get soggy and the arugula might start to wilt.

This looks wonderful. I don't think I would have thought to use mozzarella in this context, but it looks like it works really well here.
