Strawberry rocket salad
strawberry rocket salad is one of the perfect summer salads. I am using most of the fresh summer produce for the salad with a yummy homemade vinaigrette. It is colorful, flavorful, and has a mix of sweet and peppery flavors.
The salad is easily vegan and gluten-free as well.
Arugula - Use fresh moisture-free rocket leaves for the salad.
Strawberry - Use seasonal fresh sweet strawberries.
Pink radish - They are perfect for salads and they go very well with strawberries.
Nuts - Gives a lovely crunch to the salad and hence I would love to add.
Microgreens - For a healthy touch to the salads.
Olive oil - It's distinct and gives a perfect blend to the salad.
Maple syrup - gives a lovely pop and twist to the flavor and you may also replace maple syrup with honey.
Lemon juice - Fresh lemon juice is a must for the citrus punch in the vinaigrette.
Black pepper powder, Garlic, and Onion Powder - Give a balance in taste to the vinaigrette.
Salt - Adjust and add as per taste.
How to make Arugula Strawberry Salad
1. In a mixing bowl add ½ tsp of garlic powder, ¼ tsp of onion powder, and ¼ tsp of garlic powder. Also, add in the required salt and then add in 1 tbsp of vinegar, 1 tbsp of olive oil, and 1 tbsp of Maple syrup. Combine everything until mixed and set aside.
2. In a serving tray add the clean rocket leaves.
3. Top them with sliced strawberry and red radish.
4. Garnish with slivered almonds, pistachios, and microgreens. Finally, add in the prepared dressing. Mix everything and serve immediately.
Tips & Variations
- Always mix the dressing with the salad just before serving. The vinaigrette has citrus ingredients and hence it is not wise to keep them waiting.
- Always use clean and dry moisture free rocket leaves for the salad. This helps in keeping the salad fresh and delicious.
Salad goes well with some warm soup or with some garlic bread and pizza. You can also serve them as a side with some grilled protein like Tandoori Chicken or Paneer cauliflower patties.
