Arugula Salad with Strawberries and Grape Tomatoes


Arugula_StwaberrySalad

 

It is summer and farmer’s market and groceries are full of fresh vegetables.  In this 90 degree temperature, I don’t think any one would enjoy standing in front of a hot stove or oven and cooking something for dinner.  Especially I don’t.  So I have been trying different salads and this came out to be one of my favorite and it so simple and easy to make with just a few ingredients.
