I thought I'd better hurry up and post this wonderful salad before it completely slipped my mind. I'm sure I have mentioned it before here, but if not...I am crazy mad for arugula! I love the spicy, slightly bitter taste. I love the shape of the leaves and the texture. I think it's just terrific for food photos too.
I still had a bottle of Apple Poppyseed dressing left over from my Girard's giveaway and I had an apple sitting on my counter...my mind's wheels started to turn. I thought if I picked up some goat cheese and toasted pecans I'd have myself one sweet little salad.
I found some sweet and spicy toasted pecans at Trader Joe's. Boy, are they ever tasty! I love the way this salad turned out. -Fresh and crisp with just a touch of sweetness and spice. Perfect!

I also wanted to announce that the handy dandy Random Generator chose Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy as the lucky winner of the Picture Me Cooking cookbook. Congrats Kelsey!
