early summer salad

9 Jun

It was painfully hot last weekend in New York.  For the most part, I can handle the heat (I mean hello, I grew up in LA), but the humidity really gets to me.  I usually have a hard time being inside a kitchen on super hot days.   This is an easy salad that utilizes some of early summer/late spring ingredients I picked up at the market.  I’m not going to bore you with details of how to make a salad (if you can’t figure this one out I’m not sure there is much hope for you) but I will tell you what’s in it: local arugula, sliced strawberries, parmesan flakes, a drizzle of olive oil, fresh lemon juice, and a pinch of salt.  Quite a refreshing and light salad, if I might say so myself.

For those of you curious about my weekend grocery bill:

  • 2 boxes strawberries $6.00
  • 1 box local arugula $ 3.99
  • .17/lb parmesan flakes $4.25

this serves about 4….stay cool everyone.

    Add bacon! Add bacon! I know it adds heat to the whole thing, but I made a strawberry salad with bacon and I feel a lot better about my life ever since.
