Ingredients

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.)

Directions

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 :)
