Strawberry Arugula Salad

We love to make this strawberry salad when there are plenty of fresh greens to pick. I serve it as a side salad, or make it an entree by topping it with chicken. —Sara Longworth, Worcester, Massachusetts

    This salad was so fresh and delicious! The first time I made it, I didn't have the orange juice concentrate, so I just squeezed the juice out of the orange. The second time, I added supremed orange slices. That made it extra delicious. I recommend using the slivered almonds. I tried it with sliced almonds and they were too thin to really add a crunch. My kids even like this salad. I highly recommend it! YUMMY!

    My friend made this but used an oil & vinegar vinaigrette instead. She put salmon fillets on top of each salad. The combination of the greens, cheese, strawberries, salmon and dressing was delicious

    This recipe sounds wonderful, but I will have to find a substitute for the orange juice as I a allergic to oranges. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm listening.

    This delicious salad is now a favorite of my family! I used the baby spinach this time but will also try the arugula in the future. I lightly toasted the slivered almonds and left the red onion in slices. Instead of orange juice concentrate which I didn't have on hand, I used fresh squeezed orange juice, which naturally gave it a milder but fresher flavor.
