Very good, and I loved that I was able throw this salad together in less than five minutes (aside from making the glazed pecans the night before). I used baby arugula and mini turkey pepperoni, so there was no chopping needed. This almost tasted like a deconstructed pizza salad. I liked it a lot, and maybe I'll try it with some sun-dried tomatoes next time. [Made & reviewed for PRMR]
I love arugula and spicy lettuces, so just knew I would love this! I used honey glazed pecans instead of walnuts because that is what I had on hand. Really enjoyed the pepperoni in this....I'd never of though of adding that! The dressing is just perfect. Thanks for sharing! Made for the Aussie Reunion tag game.
