This Arugula and Apple Salad with Goat Cheese, Pecans, and a Lemon Vinaigrette is full of flavor and makes a perfect healthy side dish or main course with some added chicken, shrimp, chickpeas, or tofu.
One thing to know about me is that I am always up for a challenge and my competitive streak runs pretty deep. So when my brother shared that he only likes crunchy salads, none of those wilty greens like spinach or arugula, of course I had to make a salad that would bring him to the other side. And after a couple of failed attempts, this salad finally won him over. Between the crunch of the apples and pecans, the peppery arugula, the creamy goat cheese, and the super lemony vinaigrette - it really is one delicious salad. It can be served as a side dish or toss in your favorite protein to make it a main course. It's also delicious with leftover cold pasta and chicken, which is how we had it the next day for lunch. Just make sure to store the dressing separately if you plan to have leftovers.
