Pears and arugula were on sale at Ralph’s, so I decided to make a pear and arugula salad. However, I hate crumbly cheese… goat, bleu, gorgonzola, feta… If it comes in crumbles, I hate it. Since most pear and arugula salad recipes incorporate some form of crumbly cheese, I decided to make my own version. I love me some shaved parm, so I used that to give the salad the salty kick. I threw in some avocado because… well… I throw avocado on everything. I’ll definitely include some candied walnuts the next time I make this!
With the leftover bacon from the Shrimp and Spinach Salad that I made and the aforementioned arugula salad, I made a tasty BLTA using argula instead of lettuce. Arugula and salty things go so well together! NOM!
