Arugula Salad with Dried Cherries and Pistachios

Colin Clark

Servings: 8

The deep, sweet flavor of dried cherries contrasts a bright orange vinaigrette and peppery greens for a salad that gets better and better with each bite.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 Tbs. sherry vinegar
  • 1 Tbs. finely grated orange zest
  • 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 10 oz. baby arugula
  • 10 oz. slender carrots, preferably multiple colors, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 oz. (about 1/2 cup) dried cherries, coarsely chopped
  • 2 oz. (about 1/2 cup) pistachios, very finely chopped

    I plan to make this recipe. Are the pistachios raw? Salted? Toasted but no salt? Are the cherries plain or sweetened?
