5 oz fresh arugula (I use baby arugula for bite size portions)
4 oz crumbled goat cheese
1/2 cup candied pecans pieces (I find these by the salad area of my store, but plain toasted will also work)
1 cup fresh sliced strawberries
Basil Vinaigrette (see below)
1/2 cup olive oil
3 Tbl apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 Tbl Gourmet Garden Basil or finely chopped basil
1 1/2 tsp honey
Salt and pepper, to taste
In a medium bowl whisk together ingredients. Season with salt & pepper or additional honey is desired. Set aside.
In a large salad bowl, gently toss together arugula, goat cheese, strawberries and pecans. Dressing with basil dressing or serve on the side.
