One of my all-time favorite green salads. It’s the perfect combination of peppery, sweet and salty! The homemade Sherry Vinaigrette is to-die-for Delish.

Arugula, Strawberry, Blue Cheese Salad with Sherry Vinaigrette

There’s a restaurant in Southern California called Lemonade that my entire family absolutely loves. It’s got a really fun vibe and ammmazing food.  The decor is like an updated, fresh 60’s kind of thing. Lots of white Formica with splashes of a very happy sunshiny yellow. They make a lot of really delicious food but one thing I can’t get enough of is their salads. Theirs are incredible because they make them with tons of great, fresh veggies then put them together in wonderful combinations.

Arugula, Strawberry, Blue Cheese Salad with Sherry Vinaigrette

I was excited to find that the owner of this restaurant has written a cookbook with what appears to be, most, if not all, of the recipes served at Lemonade. So for dinner last night I made my favorite salad from the restaurant. Ironically, it happens to be the simplest salad on their extensive menu. The salad itself has only a few but it’s tossed with an absolutely killer dressing!

Again it’s deceptively simple……….but it comes together perfectly, transcending its humble ingredients to create, what I consider to be Vinaigrette Perfection!   Let me tell you, it’s definitely on the sweet side (which makes me love it all the more) so if you prefer a more classic, less sweet vinaigrette, use less or no honey. Please don’t pass this recipe up because of its simple list of ingredients!  I hope you give it a try and let me know if you too agree, this is an absolutely killer salad!
