Picnic in a Jar - Arugula & Cherry Tomato Salad with Balsamic Drizzle

While picnicking for our anniversary we also had a small jar salad. It was the perfect accompaniment for the Spring Veggie Orzo Salad we also made. This recipe is a take on the classic caprese salad. It's a spring version, if you will, and really delicious!

There isn't a fancy dressing for this one it's just a simple balsamic vinegar drizzled over it. I can't really emphasize enough how important good balsamic vinegar is for this application.

The salad travels beautifully in the jar but make sure you put the balsamic in a separate container and drizzle before serving. This simple salad is both beautiful and portable! Enjoy!

Arugula & Cherry Tomato Salad with Balsamic Drizzle

Makes 1 serving

Handful of baby arugula, de-stemmed
Handful of baby spinach, de-stemmed
2-3 Basil leaves, torn
5-8 Cherry tomatoes, halved
1 tbsp Crumbled feta
Pinch of salt & pepper
1-2 tbsp Good Balsamic vinegar

Mix the arugula, spinach, and basil together and add to the bottom of the jar. Top with tomatoes, feta, salt, & pepper. Drizzle balsamic vinegar just before serving.
