Fresh Summer Salad

Hi Friends!

This is a fresh and delicious summer salad made with seasonal fruits: strawberries, raspberries, baby arugula and purslane (verdolaga), a green leaf with a fresh and mild flavor. I also added some goat cheese and prepared a raspberry vinaigrette for an extra flavor punch.

Ingredients for salad:

1 small package of baby arugula

1 bunch of purslane (verdolaga)

1/2 package of mixed greens

1/2 small goat cheese cylinder cut in small pieces

2 whole trays raspberries (reserve one for the vinaigrette)

12 strawberries cut in half

1/4 cup toasted almonds, walnuts or pecans

Ingredients for the salad dressing:

1 raspberries tray

1 small shallot cut in cubes

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

1 cup olive oil

juice of one lemon

salt & pepper to taste

Directions:

For the salad: Wash all fruits and vegetables thoroughly before cutting and arranging them on a serving plate.

For the vinaigrette place all the ingredients in a blender and process until a rich and a velvety sauce is obtained. Serve over the salad.

Hope you like it like I did!
