Mozzarella Arugula Salad

Mozzarella Arugula Salad is topped with juicy tomatoes, fragrant black olives and sweet balsamic reduction.

I love both Mozzarella and Arugula. So combining the two together in a salad was the best logical move to do. The salad is refreshing, full of vitamins and proteins. If you love a good salad, which is easy to make and taste delicious, I recommend checking the BLT Potato Salad and Garlic Kale Salad.

Mozzarella Arugula Salad

This Mozzarella Arugula Salad is healthy, colorful, delicious and refreshing. It features juicy and beefy tomatoes from the farmer’s market, little pearls of mozzarella and  regal large black olives. Then, they are mixed with fresh arugula. I drizzled a little of organic olive oil, and some balsamic reduction. As a result, the salad came out perfection.

The flavor is to die for since it’s fresh and delicious. Also, the texture is out of this world, because the chewy arugula, soft mozzarella and juicy tomatoes just pair extremely well. Similarly, the olives are the cherry on the cake, since they are fragrant and add a rich, beautiful aroma.

  • Similarly, it’s best to use organic or fresh farmed tomatoes, as the flavor will be best.

Haha, yes I know "food blogger syndrome" all too well. I try my best to only keep one or two pieces of treats I make and give away the rest, but I struggle when something is REALLY really good. ;) I love fresh mozza and have never tried it with arugula, it looks awesome!

Many thanks KC, yes sometimes from the recipes that we post it seems that we survive on white sugar only lol, but definitely behind the scenes I try to balance it, I am not always successful, but I do try to balance it!
