Arugula salad with walnuts, golden raisins, grape tomatoes, and Gorgonzola cheese in honey-balsamic dressing.
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!
