Strawberry Goat Cheese Arugula Salad

October 8, 2016
Although I try eat healthy whenever I can, I’m not the biggest fan of salads. You have to be a pretty amazing tasting salad for me to make, order you at a restaurant let alone blog about you so shoutout to this salad! It’s so simple yet perfect because it’s the right amount of sweet, sour and peppery flavors. The salmon is just the cherry (or should I say protein) on the top of this tasty salad. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.


Ingredients for Salad:

6-8 Strawberries
Mixed Greens (optional)
1/4 Red Onion
4 oz Goat Cheese
1 Avocado (optional)
1 Tbsp of Olive Oil
1 Tbsp spoon Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 Lime



Ingredients for Salmon:
Cajun/Blackening Seasoning
1 Tbsp Olive Oil


Once your salmon is seasoned, you put it in a pan over medium/high heat because  you want it to get crispy.

Once it looks blackened, you flip it and get the other side to look similar.

Afterwards, you stick it in the 375 degree pre-heated oven.

While we wait for the salmon to cook, you can start prepping your salad ingredients


like your strawberries…

and your onions.

I used a bag of arugula and a bag of greens and mixed them together in a bowl so it wasn’t just arugula but using just arugula is fine too.

Toss in your onions and strawberries.

Then your goat cheese (I would put the entire container if I wasn’t sharing but putting in just 1/3 is good too).

Then add a drizzle of olive oil and a squeeze of lime and toss..


and toss!


It should look something like this when it’s properly tossed, you can add more or less ingredients depending on how you like it.


Then you serve the salad with your salmon filet on top, and a few avocado slices and Enjoy!

Can’t wait for you guys to try it. Let me know what you think!
