Nothing beats a flavorful salad on a hot summer day. But a salad that involves strawberries is even better! Today, I’m pulling recipe inspiration from one of BHG’s newest publications, Fresh. It’s a fabulous cookbook full of recipes for enjoying ingredients at their peak.
Each recipe tells you when the particular dish is best served based on the availability of ingredients. This also means that the ingredients will be at their ultimate stage of flavor and freshness. And honestly, that’s the best time to eat something.
This delightful salad features fresh strawberries so now is about the best time of year to serve it. Strawberries paired with peppery arugula, tangy balsamic, and a little cheese, and you have salad perfection.
Since I’m a huge fan of cheese, I absolutely love the manchego fricos on this dish. Fricos are cheese crisps made by heating a thin layer of cheese in a sauté pan. The high temperature draws out the oils and makes an interesting little crisp. It’s such a unique garnish for a salad as the crispiness adds great texture. To be honest, I could just snack on these all day.
You can find the recipe for the salad by clicking here.
