Arugula Salad With Pork And Fresh Cherries

Pin It


This is the salad that features the Pork With Cherry Preserves And Mustard recipe that I posted right before this.

This arugula salad is full of so many great flavors and textures besides just the pork.  It has little pieces of Chavrie goat cheese scattered on it as well as fresh cherry halves and my new favorite- Marcona almonds.  If you can’t find Chavrie then substitute another creamy type goat cheese.

I took a plate of it to my neighbor to try and even though she was leaving to go out to dinner, she smelled it and had to take a couple of bites right then.  She loved it and wanted to know when I would be posting the recipe.  Everybody that has tried it has been raving about it so I know I will be making it again soon.

You could always switch it up and use chicken in place of the pork, as long as you use the same cherry preserve and mustard sauce to cook it in!

I reduced the leftover sauce down and used it in this salad dressing as well as a little bit of balsamic vinegar and a touch more mustard.  I thinned the dressing with rice milk but you could use any dairy or non dairy milk substitute.

I hope you will try this salad because it is a very fun way to enjoy the lovely fresh cherries that are in stores right now.

    That looks great. I would be tempted to use chicken, but I think the cherries would go particularly well with pork. Thanks for participating in the salad challenge.
