Quick and simple, but something unique. The dressing was simple and I thought this would need more flavor, but a little extra fresh ground pepper at the table was all this needed. I never buy apricots, but they were on sale at Spounts this week. Would have never thought to put them in salad if I hadn't seen this recipe. YUM!
Made this tonight with leftover herb grilled chicken. The apricots in my case were ripe enough to add a nice sweetness and the vinaigrette added a nice tang. Made recipe as written. Served it with garlic bread. Yum.
I changed up this recipe by using the pre-grilled packaged chicken you can buy in the store. Also, since I couldn't find arugula ANYWHERE, I just used a mixture of salad greens. While it is a delicious salad, I probably will not make it again, as I have found several other salads far better than this.
I would make this dish again. However, the apricots didn't add any sweetness at all. In fact, if anything, they were slightly sour. Perhaps they weren't ripe enough, and that was the problem. I may try substituting peaches, as others did.
I also used peaches for this recipe and grilled them before slicing them and my son couldn't get enough of the meal. I will try with Balsamic Vinegar instead of white vinegar next time. Fast and easy to make.
Very simple, very flexible, and very tasty. I used white peaches instead of apricots. I would say this is more like 3-4 servings (rather than 2), unless you're famished. Definitely a keeper.
