Arugula is one of my favorite greens and find it to be a very special leaf. It has vital phytochemicals, anti-oxidants, vitamins, and minerals that support good health and since Valentine’s Day is this week why not making a falling in love arugula salad with seasonal fruits to pamper yourself and that very special someone in your life with a salad that combines the spiciness of the arugula with the sweetness of the strawberries and the mango and the tartness of the red currents. All drizzled with a homemade velvety poppy seed dressing that finishes the dish. I invite you to prepare this fresh Arugula Salad with Seasonal Fruits for a romantic dinner for two.

Prep your fruits, by washing and cutting. For the mango it is suggested to use a melon baller to make small mango balls and for the strawberries remove the stem and cut lengthwise. To make the salad start by putting a bed of fresh arugula in a nice plate, then add the mango and the strawberries.
