Dried Fig, Goat Cheese and Arugula Salad

Easy to make, surprisingly elegant.


  • 1 tablespoon Sue Bee® Honey
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 6 white dried figs
  • 6 ounces arugula
  • 4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons sherry wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 sprigs rosemary
  • 4 tablespoons goat cheese


  • Toast walnuts on a baking sheet in the oven at 300 F until they are just fragrant, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool.
  • In a food processor, or metal bowl, combine Sue Bee® honey, rosemary, vinegar, water, mustard, salt and pepper. Slowly blend in the oil.
  • Combine arugula, figs and walnuts in a salad bowl. Give the dressing a final whisk and toss with salad.
  • Divide salad onto four plates and garnish with one tablespoon of goat cheese.
