Fruit, Nut & Arugula Salad, for Spring or Fall

½ lb arugula leaves, torn if large

2 med. pears, apples, or Asian pears (autumn) OR 1 c. strawberries (spring)

½ c. walnuts or pecans, coarsely chopped

½. c. crumbled goat, feta, or other soft cheese

 

Balsamic Dressing:

½ c. olive oil

scant ¼ c. balsamic vinegar

1-2 tbsp. tamari soy sauce (to taste)

(optional) chopped fresh herbs such as parsley, dill, basil, etc.

 

Core and chop apples/pears (autumn), or wash and slice strawberries (spring). In a large bowl, mix arugula with fruit. Add nuts and cheese. Toss well. For dressing, mix all ingredients in a jar or salad cruet. Shake vigorously until well blended. Dress salad at serving time.        Serves 4-6

            This is a great way to introduce people to arugula. The spice of arugula is mellowed and perfectly complemented by the sweet fruit, creamy cheese, buttery nuts, and tang of balsamic dressing!
