Happiness is a new supermarket overflowing with fresh fruit and vegetables!
A new supermarket opened in the ‘hood last week! This is a BIG deal in these parts!!! Even though I live in New York City, my neighborhood is not exactly overflowing with healthy food choices. Anyway – yay! A fabulous market opened, only 1/2 mile walk from my apartment, which is great! That means I get to shop and walk! Built in exercise …
Big, juicy strawberries were on sale! So, I bought me a box along with some other fixings and tossed up an incredible lunch!
Tushkateers, I know that you know that fruits and vegetables are good for us! The more we eat, the better! Here’s to your health!
Arugula and Strawberry Salad
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
4 cups baby arugula, or torn arugula leaves
2 cups sliced strawberries (or more if you like, nobody ever got fat on strawberries)
1 ounce Blue Cheese, crumbled into small pieces
2 tablespoons FIG balsamic vinegar (my favorite of all balsamic vinegars)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Toast walnuts in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until lightly browned and aromatic.
Take in a deep breath and enjoy the aroma.
Transfer to a salad bowl. Let it cool for a few minutes and then add arugula, strawberries, cheese, salt n’ pepper. Sprinkle vinegar and oil over the salad and toss gently.
TIP: Sometimes, I heat the balsamic fig vinegar until it gets thick, like syrup! Wowzer!
