salad of arugula, goat cheese, roasted red peppers and toasted pistachios


This summer, while dining with a friend at a quaint little Italian bistro in Denver, I was able to feast on a most delicious salad.

It consisted of arugula, goat cheese, roasted red peppers and toasted pistachios, all dressed in a light balsamic vinaigrette.

It was memorable for sure.

Like the kind of memorable where you take a picture of it just so you can look at it again and again and recall its delight (or perhaps that’s just something I do!).

Last night I attempted to recreate this salad, and I must say, it had me raving all over again.

It’s super easy to create. And for real convenience, you can pick up all of the ingredients you’ll need at Trader Joes.

  1. Bag of arugula
  2. Log of goat cheese
  3. Jar of roasted red peppers
  4. Bag of pistachio pieces
  5. Bottle of balsamic vinaigrette

Of course, if you are wanting to be a bit more creative in the kitchen,  you can roast your own red peppers and make your own homemade balsamic dressing like I did.

Either way you go, its sure to be an incredible side dish. Hope you get to enjoy!
