As others have note, this is an excellent mix of salty/tangy/sweet, crunchy/creamy etc! I also just sprinkled the pecans on the greens and laid down a dallop of goat cheese. And I lightly grilled the peach halves first as suggested by someone else and added the honey to the oil and lemon before adding it to the greens. May add poached chicken the next time to make it a full meal. YUM!
Arugula Salad with Honey-Drizzled Peaches
From EatingWell: July/August 2008
Rich, nutty pecans complement the creamy tang of the goat cheese and peppery arugula balances the sweet juicy peaches and drizzle of honey in a simple, satisfying salad that lets the pure flavors of the ingredients shine.
5 Reviews for Arugula Salad with Honey-Drizzled Peaches
YUMMY and healthy! (Just a bit confused at first on what the ingredient but firm peaches was. yikes.
Easy and delicious. Perfect blend of sour/sweet, crunchy/creamy.
This was excellent! I didn't bother to roll the goat cheese in the pecans, just sprinked them on the greens and laid down a dallop of goat cheese mixed with thyme. But the BEST change I made was to lightly grill the peach halves first. Excellent hot/cold, salty/tangy/sweet, crunchy/creamy interplay.
Really quite excellent. Made a few minor changes . . . Rolled the goat cheese in pecans but it fell apart when being sliced so it turned into a goat cheese and pecan crumble - which was excellent anyway. I mixed the honey into the other liquids and drizzled a small amount on the arugula and then tossed it. After salad was assembled, I then drizzled a little more dressing on the peaches. I didn't even use 1/4 of the dressing on a serving for two. Wonderful flavors and textures.
