It's time to induldge in some yummy springtime recipies! One of my favorites is a Strawberry Arugula Salad with Sweet Lime Vinaigrette!
8 strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced
10 cups baby arugula
4 ounces Parmesan, chipped with the tip of a knife to crumble
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 cup olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Toss the strawberry slices, arugula, and Parmesan crumbles in a large bowl.
In a medium bowl, vigorously whisk together the mustard, sugar, lime juice, and orange juice, allowing time between additions to completely blend and dissolve. When adding the olive oil, be sure to add slowly in a thin stream while still whisking with the other hand. This is a perfect time to ask for an extra hand, or simply place the bowl in the center of a dish towel curled into a circle around the base to stabilize it while whisking. Taste and season with a pinch of salt, if needed, and a grind or 2 of pepper. Pour over the salad and toss.
