And more strawberries with a fennel and arugula salad

20140521-000334.jpg

I love the mix of flavors in this salad and the textures. Imagine mouthfuls of crunchy aromatic fennel and fleshy soft strawberries with the distinct bitterness of the arugula.

1 punnet arugula leaved
4 large strawberries
half a bulb of fennel
olive oil
balsamic vinegar
freshly ground pepper and sea salt

Arrange the arugula leaves on a serving plate.
Slice the strawberries lengthwise and slice thinly.
Slice the fennel bulb into thin slices.
Arrange the strawberries and fennel on to the rocket leaves.
Season with fresnly ground pepper and salt. Drizzle with some olive oil and a few drops of balsamic vinegar.
This is ready to serve as it is. It is worth buying a good quality balsamic vinegar as it makes a big difference to the flavour especially when using with such delicate flavors of strawberry and fennel.
