Fig, Arugula & Blue Cheese Salad
Fig week continues with this savory and sweet salad. Salty blue cheese pairs so nicely with sweetness of the figs. The arugula adds a nutty flavor coupled with the crunch of the pecans. One of my favorite salads – and its SUPER simple!
What you need:
- 4 cups fresh arugula (I like the leaves whole, but you can tear them into bite-sized pieces
- 8-10 fresh figs
- ½ cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese
- ½ cup toasted pecan pieces
- Balsamic vinaigrette to taste
How to Do it:
Cut the figs into quarters.
In a large bowl mix arugula, figs, gorgonzola and pecans. Toss in the vinaigrette.
Divide onto four plates and serve.
