The sweetness of the honey-drizzled peaches lends a nice contrast to the arugula in this delightful salad!

Arugula Salad with Honey-Drizzled Peaches


1/4 cup nuts, pecans, toasted – finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt, Kosher – divided
Pepper, black ground – freshly ground to taste
4 ounces cheese, goat, soft – 1 log
4 ounces lettuce, arugula – 6 cups
1 tablespoon oil, olive, extra virgin
1 medium lemon – zest and juice
4 medium peach(es) – ripe but firm, halved and pitted
4 tablespoons honey


1. Place pecans in a shallow dish. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Roll goat cheese log in the pecans to coat. Refrigerate the log until firm, if necessary, then cut into 8 rounds.

2. Place arugula in a medium bowl. Add oil, lemon zest and juice and toss to coat; season with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper.

3. Divide the arugula among 4 shallow bowls. Nestle 2 peach halves into each portion of greens, top each half with a round of pecan-crusted goat cheese and drizzle each salad with 1 tablespoon honey.

Makes 4 servings.
