2 cups of organic baby arugula (it packs more of a punch than that prewashed “baby arugula” salad in the bag at the super market)
3 heads of young green leaf lettuce
2 -3 heads of young romain
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
1/2 cup sliced radishes plus greens from the radishes
2 cups of strawberries (stemmed and sliced)
With a slotted spoon, scoop the marinated onions out of the Spring Onion Balsamic Vinaigrette and add to the salad mixture.
Season with black pepper and salt and toss.
Top with crumbled smoked ricotta salada cheese and enjoy!
Note: Why scoop out the onions? By marinating them in the vinaigrette the sweet spring onions become even mellower and absorb the tang and sweetness of the vinaigrette. Also by scooping them out and adding them to the salad, you can *lightly* dress the salad (important for a low fat option) which will allow you to really appreciate the impressive flavors of organic, locally grown produce without drowning it in dressing. Whenever you have gorgeous ingredients like these, you definitely don't want to smother them in intensely flavored vinaigrette, which could easily happen if you pour the vinaigrette over these young greens. In minutes, they'd wilt and loose a lot of their appeal.
