Mixed Baby Greens and Arugula with Blackberries and Pecans



This is an elegant salad full of antioxidants, fiber and vitamin E and C. Baby greens and arugula tossed with pecans and berries is a nice light salad to complement a meal. This salad relies on different textures rather than fat for flavor. Sweet, crunchy pecans, peppery arugula, and juicy berries all complimented with a light vinaigrette.

    3. What volume of dressing does this make? I imagine that it would be around 1/2 cup. Is this correct?

      Thank you.
