Arugula, Pear, & Arina Goat Gouda Salad
I loved this arugula salad with sliced pear, slivers of Arina Goat Gouda, and hazelnuts! The peppery bite of the arugula was balanced by a vinaigrette sweetened with honey, the creaminess of the goat gouda and the fresh nutty flavor of the hazelnuts.
The vinaigrette was simple: just olive oil, champagne vinegar, and honey. I wondered about adding chopped shallots to the vinaigrette, but I'm glad I didn't.
I'd love to hear your favorite aruguala salad/fruit combination in the comments. Thanks to Tanya for suggesting this pairing.
