Arugula Salad with Strawberries
A Note from Feedfeed

This salad is so refreshing and satisfying, it's almost too good to be a salad! It has a nice brightness from the strawberries, plus a delicious crunch from the cucumber, and it'll keep you full with cheese and grains. The mint flavor is absolutely delightful, too! This recipe comes from @erekav who joined the #feedfeed podcast to talk about her culinary journey, and how she juggles her career with being a mom of two!
