I love baby arugula leaves – they are so good and flavorful in fresh salads! I also love spinach. Spinach and arugula definitely top the list of my favorite salad greens! They are easily interchangeable in recipes: in this salad, you can easily substitute spinach leaves for arugula.

Try this delicious salad – it’s such a combination of flavors: savory, sweet, peppery, and salty.  Earthy walnuts, sweet golden raisins, lightly peppery arugula leaves, juicy grape tomatoes, creamy and salty and very flavorful Gorgonzola cheese – all of that tossed in a slightly sweet dressing made with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and a touch of honey.  YUM!
