Making salad with arugula and mozzarella:

Step 1: Prepare the ingredients.

The harvested crop must be washed thoroughly and dried with paper towels. Take a chopping board and a sharp knife. We start chopping vegetables: tomatoes - slices, cucumbers - slices or quarters, chop the onion finely, and leave the arugula as it is. Instead of a red onion, you can take ordinary onion, and so that it does not get bitter, chop the onion and scald it with boiling water. Open the package with mozzarella cheese and put it on a plate. If you have cheese balls, then you can leave its original shape, if the briquette - then cut into small pieces.

Step 2: Prepare a mustard salad dressing.

In a deep plate, mix mustard, lemon juice, liquid honey and olive oil. Add salt and pepper and mix thoroughly until smooth. It is better to whisk the sauce slightly with a whisk or fork. This dressing will add originality to the taste of the salad.

Step 3: Cooking salad with arugula and mozzarella.

We spread arugula, chopped cucumbers and tomatoes, onions and mozzarella balls in a salad bowl. We season the salad with honey mustard sauce, mix and taste. If there is not enough salt and pepper, we will correct the situation. Salad ready!

Step 4: Serve the finished salad with arugula and mozzarella.

Before serving, the salad can be chilled in the refrigerator or left as is, at room temperature. You can decorate it with pine nuts or croutons. The salad is well suited as a hearty and quick breakfast, as well as a side dish for meat and fish dishes. An unusual dressing will surprise those who love fresh vegetable salads. Enjoy your meal!
