Fall Salad

Ok, ok. I know it’s not fall. I get it. But I’ve been craving this salad so much recently and it’s really great for hot summer days, too.

-container of triple washed arugula
-handful of pepitas (maybe 30  pepitas)
-1.5 tablespoons of goat cheese
– 1/2-2/3 of a gala or Braeburn apple
-about half of a pomegranate’s seeds


-1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
-2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
-1 teaspoon of mustard

Toast pepitas in the oven at 350 degrees with olive oil for 7 minutes or until browned. While that is toasting, mix the rest of the ingredients in a salad bowl. Once pepitas are browned, mix in thoroughly with salad to melt the goat cheese. Add dressing and serve at once. Serves 4.
