When you are famished and looking for a quick and easy way to appease your hunger, this yummy salad could come to your rescue. Betty tosses up an extremely delicious, nutritious, filling, and flavorful salad that features arugula, cherry, and pecan. To add icing to the cake, she serves it in a fancy Parmesan bowl.


Dried baby arugula lettuce 4 Cup (64 tbs) (You May Substitute Baby Spinach / Other Greens, In The Amount You Want For The Number Of Salads You'Re Making)
Dried cherries 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) ((You May Use Another Dried Fruit / Fresh Fruit.))
Feta cheese 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) , crumbled ((You May Substitute Blue Cheese Crumbles / Cheddar/Colby Cubes.))
Glazed pecans 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) , broken in pieces ((You Will Find A Recipe For Glazed Party Pecans In Bettyskitchen.))


In a medium-sized salad bowl, place 4 cups baby arugula lettuce, ½ cup dried cherries, ½ cup feta cheese crumbles, and ½ cup glazed pecan pieces. Toss gently, and then serve onto a salad plate. Provide a salad dressing of your choice. I served my Arugula Cherry Pecan Salad in a Parmesan Cheese Salad Bowl, accompanied by bottled Poppy Seed Dressing. It is a delicious combination of flavors and makes a beautiful presentation! I hope you like this idea for creating and serving salads! --Betty :)
