Oh health, yeah! This salad recipe is delicious and healthy and so easy to make. Dried cranberries, candied pecans, goat cheese and fresh figs make it so Californian it has to wear shades.



4 ounces Arugula
8 figs
8 slices red onion
3 ounces goat cheese
1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon avocado oil
pinch sea salt
pinch cracked pepper
1/3 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup dried cranberries
2 ounces candied pecans

Total Time:

5 minutes

5 minutes
2-3 servings 
Recipe Type:
  1. Add 1 tablespoon avocado oil, 1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar, a pinch of sea salt and a pinch of freshly cracked pepper into a bowl.  

  2. Mix ingredients together.  

  3. Add in 8 slices of red onion and half of the arugula, then toss just to get the arugula and onions coated.  

    NOTE: NOTE: This is a very lightly dressed salad, if you prefer more dressing, then just double up on the salad dressing measurements.
  4. Add in the remainder of the arugula and toss.  

  5. Add in 1/3 cup golden raisins, 1/4 cup dried cranberries, and 2 ounces candied pecans. Then toss it a bit just to get it fluffed up. 

  6. Add in 8 figs cut into quarters. Just work the figs in with the arugula and other ingredients. Don't overwork them as they are delicate.  

  7. Top the salad with 3 ounces of goat cheese.  

  8. If you'd like, you can add a little bit more cracked pepper on top and serve!
