Strawberry Arugula Salad with Papaya and Mango

This salad really is a product of coincidence. The fact that it is too hot to turn the oven/stove on, and the leftover fruits and greens in the refrigerator were the inspiration behind this light and refreshing salad. I added arugula, cucumber, mint, sunflower seeds, Papaya, raw Mango and Strawberry and tossed it with a little bit of feta cheese and lemon – honey dressing.

In addition to being a total taste treat, this salad is super quick and impossible to screw up. Although, I recommend serving it at your summer weekend gatherings, it definitely makes up for an easy weeknight dinner. Add a piece of bread, if you would like to give yourself some carbs fix.
