For the Salad:

  • 1 bunch Arugula approx a dozen small leaves
  • 12 Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1 Fig
  • 1/8 cup Pine Nuts
  • 1 small Shallot
  • 3.5 ounces Feta Cheese

For the Dressing:

  • 1/3 Vinegar *see Notes
  • 2/3 Virgin Olive Oil
  • pinch Salt
  • pinch Black Pepper


  • Prepare all your fresh produce by washing them properly under cold water. That includes the arugula, tomatoes, and fig.
  • Shredd the arugula leaves cut the tomatoes in two and the fig into smaller pieces.
  • Place it all into a salad bowl and add the pine nuts.
  • Peel and chop your shallot small. Add to the salad bowl too.
  • Cut your Feta Cheese into small cubes and add to the other ingredients or crumble into the salad bowl. Mix everything a bit.
  • For the arugula salad vinaigrette dressing, add vinegar, a pinch of salt and pepper and mix. Then add the oil (seasoning needs to be mixed first with vinegar because it doesn't mix into oil) and either beat with a fork or shake in a dressing shaker.
  • Pour dressing over salad just before serving your arugula feta salad.


  1. For the Vinaigrette Dressing mix always 1/3 vinegar with 2/3 oil, no matter the quantity. Fill up a dressing bottle to use in the days ahead in other salads as well, or simply mix 1 tbsp vinegar with 2 tbsp oil. Always season with salt and pepper and taste with a piece of salad leave.
