Let $\Omega \subset \mathbb{R}^d$ with $d\geq 2$ be a bounded domain of class $\mathcal{C}^{1,\beta }$ for some $\beta \in (0,1)$. For $p\in (1, \infty )$ and $s\in (0,1)$, let $\Lambda ^s_{p}(\Omega )$ be the first eigenvalue of the mixed local-nonlocal operator $-\Delta _p+(-\Delta _p)^s$ in $\Omega $ with the homogeneous nonlocal Dirichlet boundary condition. We establish a strict Faber-Krahn type inequality for $\Lambda _{p}^s(\cdot )$ under polarization. As an application of this strict inequality, we obtain the strict monotonicity of $\Lambda _{p}^s(\cdot )$ over annular domains, and characterize the uniqueness of the balls in the classical Faber-Krahn inequality for $-\Delta _p+(-\Delta _p)^s$.
