I only used spinach because the family isn't a fan of arugula. And as fresh figs aren't in season, I picked up some good quality dried figs and cut them into quarters. Still very good ~ can't wait to use the fresh figs! Next time I'll cut back on the red onion. I can't help but think a sprinkle of gorgonzola would make this dish.
Every ingredient in this salad stands out as a star and makes a contrabution to the final persentation and taste. It is a beautifully constructed salad. Depending upon the tartness of the lime you are using, you may want a little more or less of the honey. Besides as a side salad and starter, I also served it as a light lunch with Seeduction Bread from Whole Foods and a very nice local fresh goat cheese. Yummy together.
Made to recipe, except used less-expensive store blend of arugula, spinach, radicchio. The dressing was too sweet for us so added a bit more lime & soy. Recommend you blend honey to taste rather than the full amount, til the dressing seems right for you. Other than that, the salad was great, beautiful presentation. Served as starter to CL's lemon oregano lamb chops. Great meal.
