For the salad:
½ pound arugula
½ pound Tuscan kale
12 strawberries, sliced
For the balsamic dressing:
12 very ripe strawberries, sliced
½ cup A-Premium White Balsamic Vinegar
1 cup Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tablespoon shallot, minced
Salt and pepper to taste
For the cocoa-dusted hazelnuts:
2 cups sugar
2 cups water
1 cup hazelnuts
1 tablespoon cocoa
For the herbed feta:
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
1 teaspoon parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon tarragon, chopped
1 teaspoon chives, diced
Combine first four ingredients in a blender and starting at a lower speed, purée well. Turn the speed up and continue to blend until completely emulsified. Season with salt and pepper.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Combine water and sugar in a small sauce pot and bring to a simmer. Add hazelnuts and simmer for two minutes. Strain nuts from simple syrup mixture and spread out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15 minutes, rotating every 5 minutes, then remove from oven and let cool slightly. Place in mixing bowl and season with a touch of salt and cocoa powder until evenly coated.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and set aside in refrigerator until ready for use.
In a large mixing bowl, combine greens, sliced strawberries, and vinaigrette to taste. Season lightly with salt and pepper and top with hazelnuts and feta.
