DIY food: strawberry and arugula salad with whole grain mustard
i’ve been so obsessed with the sweet, organic strawberries lately – check out my strawberry protein smoothie here!
this salad is simple, fresh and delicious. i made it up the other day on a dinner whim. i love fruit in salads, it’s exciting! the addition of the whole grain mustard adds an earthy tang that goes well with the creamy avocado. there are all flavors in this salad: spicy arugula, sweet strawberries, smooth avocado and tangy mustard – if you don’t like whole grain mustard, try using a dijon mustard dressing instead!
