This is how fitness salad with strawberries and arugula is prepared
Here’s how it’s done: For dressing, mix salt and pepper with balsamic vinegar. Add olive oil and mix well with a whisk.
Wash the arugula thoroughly and dry it with a salad spatula. Cut the stems. Cut into small pieces.
Wash the strawberries thoroughly, remove the greens. Cut the strawberries into quarters or eighths (chunk size), depending on their size. Marinate the strawberries in the dressing and set aside for a minute.
Heat a frying pan without fat. Fry pine nuts in it until golden brown. Tip: keep an eye on the pine nuts when frying – they burn quickly.
In a bowl, mix the marinated strawberries with arugula well. Spread on two plates and sprinkle toasted pine nuts on top. Bon appetit!
