There are loads of 'lucky charms' hidden in this Cherry Tart Arugula Salad -- like dried cherries, Swiss chard and spicy Texas pecans! It's made by our friends at Vinaigrette in Austin, who we featured in our second season of Goodtaste with Tanji.
Toss arugula and swiss chard in a large mixing bowl. Add crumbled feta, dried cherries and chilied pecans. Dress the salad to your liking with champagne vinaigrette. Toss and serve. Top with a little more feta for garnish, if desired.
For the Champagne Vinaigrette
Mix first five ingredients. Stream in olive oil and whisk to emulsify. Adjust seasoning if necessary.
For the Chilied Pecans
Mix all ingredients in large mixing bowl. Transfer coated pecans to a baking tray and roast in the oven at 350 degrees. Check every 10 minutes to avoid burning.
