Strawberry-Arugula Salad With Sweet Lime Vinaigrette
This simple strawberry and arugula salad is drizzled with a citrus vinaigrette.
|8||strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced (about 1 cup)|
|10 cups||baby arugula|
|4 ounces||parmesan cheese, crumbled with the tip of a knife (about 1 cup)|
|1 tablespoon||dijon mustard|
|2 tablespoons||fresh lime juice|
|1/4 cup||fresh orange juice|
|1/4 cup||extra-virgin olive oil|
|kosher salt and freshly ground pepper|
Toss the strawberry slices, arugula and parmesan crumbles in a large bowl.
Vigorously whisk together the mustard, sugar, lime juice and orange juice in a medium bowl, whisking between additions to dissolve all the ingredients. Add the olive oil in a thin stream while whisking with the other hand. (This is a perfect time to ask for an extra hand, or place the bowl in the center of a dish towel curled into a circle around the base to stabilize it.) Taste and season with a pinch of salt, if needed, and a grind or two of pepper. Toss the salad with some of the dressing and serve the rest on the side.
