This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

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.

  1. This was very yummy. I thought I had champagne vinegar but didn’t so I used rice vinegar instead. My husband and I. both enjoyed it.

    Thank you for this recipe! This is amazing! Loved it! I’ve made it twice now. The second time I put fresh basil from my garden in it, cracked the salt and pepper on top and drizzled olive oil. So good!

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

    Thank you.
