Arugula Salad with Nectarines, Walnuts, Bacon and Gorgonzola

The sweet and savory flavor combinations of this salad make it delicious. The warm bacon vinaigrette puts it over the top!

  • 5 oz. arugula lettuce
  • 2 medium nectarines, sliced
  • 4 slices Oscar Mayer fully cooked bacon
  • 2 T. chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 c. gorgonzola cheese
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 2 T. white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp. honey

Place arugula on a large platter. Top with nectarines and sprinkle with walnuts and gorgonzola.

In a frying pan, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon and drain on paper towel. Crumble bacon over salad.

Scrape any bacon grease from pan ( there will be little) into a small bowl. Let cool slightly. Add olive oil, vinegar, honey salt and pepper. Whisk until smooth. Drizzle over salad.
