Arugula salad with peaches, pecans and goat cheese with balsamic vinaigrette is perfect for an easy, light and delicious summer side salad!
Place the arugula on your salad serving plate and top with the peach slices, pecans and goat cheese.
To make the vinaigrette: combine all ingredients in a small jar or container with a tight-fitting lid. Shake well to combine. (Alternatively, you could whisk this really well in a bowl.)
Add the vinaigrette to the salad and toss until it’s well dressed. Serve immediately.
I use pecans, but you could substitute walnuts instead if that’s what you have on hand.
I love this with the creamy, soft goat cheese, but you could use feta cheese or another crumbly cheese if you prefer.
I make my own salad dressings, but you could substitute a store-bought balsamic vinaigrette - or another vinaigrette you love. I think a champagne or citrusy vinaigrette would be great here too.
