Cherry-Arugula Salad with Almonds and Tarragon

Serves 6
Time 5 min
Cherries and almonds are a classic pair and make a delicious salad combination with tart arugula and fragrant tarragon. Use any whole grain you like with this salad, but we like toothsome barley or farro.
Special Diets:
Ingredients
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 small shallot chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 6 tablespoons slivered almonds divided
  • 1/2 pound cherries (about 2 cups) pitted and halved, divided
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon
  • 5 ounces baby arugula
  • 1 1/2 cup cooked whole grains (e.g. barley, farro, wheat berries, wild rice)
Method

In a blender, combine vinegar, shallot, mustard, 1 tablespoon water, 3 tablespoons of the almonds and 1/4 cup of the pitted cherries. Blend until very smooth, about 1 minute. Stir in tarragon.

Combine arugula, cooked grains and remaining cherries in a large bowl. Toss with the dressing and garnish with the remaining 3 tablespoons almonds.
