    Rita~'s Note:

    I came up with this simple spring salad when my garden gave me a bunch of arugula coming up from last years seeds. Then at Trader Joe's was French green beans right from France. And fresh strawberries................. I added spring scallions and my fabulous dill mustard dressing made with my Flavored Sugar or Splenda giving this dressing a what is that flavor? But go ahead and use you favorite sugars........ This is so healthy and yummy you may feel guilty eating this.

      With one quick substitution, I changed this from a spring salad to a fall/winter salad by replacing the strawberries with an heirloom Christmas apple (pomme d'api). The apple certainly wasn't as colorful as a strawberry but it tasted good nevertheless. As for the dressing one warning: very tangy and very sweet. I loved the combination of tangy/sweet with the bite of peppery arugula. Delicious salad I plan to make again and again. I realized quite later on that I forgot to add the basil but I have no doubt it adds dimension to this salad. Thanks, ~Rita~!

      The dressing with this IS really cool! Very well balanced flavors with the strawberries and other ingredients. I live far away from a place where I can get white balsamic and I didn't have any so I used 1 TBSP dark balsamic and 2 TBSP white wine vinegar to try to similate the flavor of the milder white balsamic. Will definitely make again with the white balsamic! Very delicious!
