Another tasty looking recipe that I found on a supermarket circular. The combination of figs and goat is such a pleasure, I'm looking forward to trying this. When I finally get around to making this, will probably look for some ways to reduce the oil in the dressing.

Deliciously different salad. Perfect combination of sweet and spicy, crunchy and chewey. The peppery arugula is perfect with the rosemary scented dressing. Just wonderful!

I loved this salad, although I did make a few changes. I can't find arugula, so used romaine lettuce. I loved the dressing, and plan to use it on many salads. Loved the tanginess of the goat cheese. Thank you so much Toni. Darn, I wish my camera worked!

Subbed fresh figs (as we love them) and skipped the honey. The goat cheese, arugula and figs paired very well together.
