A fresh summer salad with lots of variety. You can substitute blue cheese for the goat's cheese, if you wish. I like to top this with a simple vinaigrette of fresh basil, apple cider vinegar and olive oil.

Made this for a dinner party that we went to instead of our usual mandarin orange salad when we realised that the host was diabetic...this turned out fantastic and received much praise from all the guests. We used pine nutes instead of sunflower as we do not really care for the latter and it worked fine...the arugula (aka rocket) is just an outstanding salad flavour. Salad is not overly leafy and the colours are very appealing. We dressed with a simple balsamic vineagrette. We will defnitely make this in future. Read More

I halved this recipe and it was enough for 4! Omitted the avacado because nobody likes them that I was serving. Used blue cheese instead of goat as another reader suggested. Used a basil vinaigrette dressing. Loved it! Delicious! Read More

Beautiful salad. I used bagged spring mix instead of arugula and left out the mandarin oranges because I didn't have any. Topped with ranch dressing (the refrigerated kind from Sam's Club). This was delicious. Paired beautifully with the Sausage Tomato Tart that I made (see reviews). Read More
