Strawberry Arugula Salad

2 large strawberries, sliced
2 cups arugula
6 spinach leaves
3-6 grape tomatoes, halved
1 celery stalk, chopped
2 florets cauliflower, chopped
1/4 cup shaved/shredded Parmesan cheese
1 tbs dried currants (optional)

This salad is a wonderful balance of sweet, salty, tart, and peppery. It is perfect along side any meal, but I usually serve it with an Italian style dish.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.  Top with an Italian vinegarette or use one of my standard dressing recipes:

1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tbs white wine vinegar
1/4 cup truffle oil (or olive oil)
1/2-1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp white sugar
1/2 tsp garlic powder


For the Dressing:
1 tbs apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup truffle oil (or olive oil)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp  fresh cracked pepper
