Arugula Salad with Strawberries

With very few calories and tons of flavor arugula is a great green to help maintain a healthy weight without sacrificing great tasting foods. As one of the best vegetable sources of Vitamin K, arugula provides a boost for bone and brain health. Centuries ago Romans discovered an unlikely quality of this leafy green. Finding that those who ate it on a regular basis were more sexually energized, it became revered as a powerful aphrodisiac. It has since been used as a sensual enhancer throughout many regions of the world, and often combined with other aphrodisiac herbs like lavender and chicory to create a somewhat of a love potion. Pairing it with sweet strawberries, salty feta and toasted pecans creates  wonderful texture and flavors.

  • 1 cup strawberries, sliced
  • ½ cup crumble feta
  • 1/3 cup toasted pecans, roughly chopped
