Spinach and Arugula Salad with Tarragon Vinaigrette

Serves 4 to 6

I love spinach salads and I love arugula. It is a peppery green that adds a lot of flavor, even in small amounts. It is not available in all grocery stores, but if you can find it, give it a try. Luckily, I can usually find it in a large clam shell container, but even the small one-ounce pack provides enough flavor to enhance other greens. Look for it with the packaged fresh herbs. That being said, this salad with the vinaigrette would be good with just the spinach or a mixture of baby greens.


Place the spinach and arugula in a large salad bowl. Place the garlic, mustard and honey in a small bowl. Add the vinegar and whisk to combine. Add the olive oil gradually, whisking constantly until emulsified. Whisk in the tarragon, salt and pepper. Add tomatoes, onions, bacon and cheese to the greens. Drizzle the desired amount of dressing over the salad and toss well. Add the cheese and toss again. Serve immediately. Refrigerate extra dressing for another day.
