Arugula Salad with Walnuts, Dried Cherries and Feta

Kitchen Tested
  • Yield 5 servings

This salad is the ultimate in flavor contrast—peppery arugula, crunchy walnuts, tart cherries and creamy feta cheese.

Mark Boughton/styling: Teresa Blackburn

Any nuts will work, along with most any dried fruit and goat cheese for the feta.


1 (11-ounce) container baby arugula
3/4 cup dried cherries
3/4 cup toasted walnuts
4 feta cheese, crumbled
3 sherry vinegar or balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Toss together arugula, cherries, walnuts and feta cheese in a large salad bowl.
  2. Combine vinegar, oil, salt and pepper, whisking well. Drizzle over salad and toss well.
