This balsamic berry and arugula salad is a delicious fresh salad that can be served as an appetizer or a meal. Enjoy with your favorite fresh berries. Vegan friendly option to remove the feta or use a vegan feta.
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.

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.
