Strawberry and Rocket (arugula) salad with Macadamias.
I love the strawberries and rocket (arugula) growing in my backyard.
I don't, however, love sunburn.
This salad is really yummy. The inspiration came from visiting the cute little cafe called 'The Elephant Walk'. They serves their salad with strawberries covered in vinegar. Freaking brilliant!
Two handfuls of rocket (arugula).
A cup of halved strawberries.
A tablespoon of balsamic glaze.
A teaspoon of truffle oil (or your favourite flavorsome oil if you don't have truffle. A light olive or flax will be fine.)
A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar.
A few shakes of pepper or to taste.
A tablespoon full of chopped macadamias.
In a bowl, put the rocket and the strawberries. Drizzle the glaze and the oil over the top, along with the vinegar. Shake on the pepper. Finally, add the chopped macadamias in the middle.
Serves one as a main, two as a side dish. It's almost like eating dessert for dinner. So refreshing! What's your favourite salad?
