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.
