RECIPE FROM CHEF KENNY JAMES, Private chef to some of your favorite Portland Trail Blazers players

Chef Kenny James said it best: “Salads don’t have to be boring,” and this strawberry and arugula salad with toasted pine nuts and cotija cheese is the furthest thing from boring. It’s bursting with flavor, super easy to make and is packed with iron, as well as vitamins A and C. If you’re in need of a new healthy salad, this is it.

Serves: 1
Prep Time: 5-7 min
Cook time: 1-2 min


4 c arugula

Clean and dry fresh arugula, then lightly coat with balsamic vinaigrette.

Place arugula in a serving bowl and add the cherry tomatoes, blueberries and feta.
