  • 5 oz arugula
  • 4 strawberries, sliced
  • ¼ cup blueberries
  • ¼ cup feta
  • 2 tbsp sliced almonds
  • balsamic glaze, adjust to taste

Balsamic Glaze

  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tsp liquid sweetener (maple syrup, honey, agave, etc).


Make the balsamic glaze

  • Bring balsamic vinegar and sweetener to boil in a small pot.
  • Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and stir.
  • Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. The glaze is complete when you pull a spoon out and the back remains coated without it all running off.

Assemble the Salad

  • In a bowl, toss together arugula, blueberries, and sliced strawberries.
  • Top with feta and almonds.
  • Drizzle the balsamic glaze over the top. I start with about 2 tsp and increase as needed to taste.
  • Split into serving bowls. This makes 2 meal sized salads or four generous side salads.
