Q: I recently had the strawberry and arugula salad at Food 101. It was absolutely divine! Could you please get the recipe so I could make this delicious salad at home?

A: What a perfect time of year for this colorful recipe from Food 101 chef/partner, Scott Crawford (left). This salad is bursting with a variety of flavors: peppery arugula, sweet ruby red strawberries and tangy blue cheese. The recipe makes extra dressing. It can be stored for up to a week in the refrigerator.
