This salad should be made with the freshest ingredients possible, and is a delight as a side to most any meal! If you can't find, or don't have bocconcini, you could use another size of fresh mozzarella instead.

Very similar to “Arugula Caprese Salad,” also from this site. If you use the ingredients “to taste,” rather than strictly measuring, I like this recipe better. The amount of onions is overkill; almost 3 T., minced, for one serving! I did reduce that significantly, and just kind of sliced the onion instead of mincing it. I do love the mix of spinach with the arugula, the mild spinach a nice counterpoint to mellow the sharper, peppery, arugula. Unfortunately, I had no spinach on hand to add, yet it was still delicious. I had a similar vinaigrette leftover from another salad, one I had adjusted to the 3:1 oil to vinegar ratio I prefer. The red onion added the slightest bite and flavor contrast to wake this up. Because I had it to add, and because this was so similar to a salad I had just days ago, I added artichokes and black olives. (And some leftover cannellini bean salad and broken crostini once I took the photos :) Hubs had a dinner meeting this evening, so this was a perfect “dinner alone” meal for me along with a glass of my favorite Cab and a beautiful Naples sunset.

excellent salad, great taste and texture. Next time I would reduce the dressing by at least half.
