Strawberry Arugula Salad with Toasted Hazelnuts

Arugula and strawberries in combination make quite an impact on the nutrition end of things. Arugula is rich in folate, vitamin c, as well as calcium and iron. And ounce per ounce, strawberries offer more vitamin C than citrus fruits.


  • 4 generous handfuls arugula
  • Aged balsamic vinegar
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 medium strawberries , stemmed and sliced
  • 3 tablespoons toasted , chopped hazelnuts
  • 1 ounce crumbled feta or shaved Parmesan
  • Salt (flaky salt, such as Maldon, if you have it)


  1. Put the arugula in a shallow bowl or serving patter. Sprinkle balsamic vinegar over the salad, drizzle lightly with olive oil, and toss well.
  2. Distribute the sliced strawberries over the greens, followed by the hazelnuts and feta.
  3. Finish with a pinch or 2 of salt.
  4. Serve immediately.
