Made up this salad with these a few ingredients I had on hand, and it came out amazingly delicious and refreshing. Everything in this salad was perfectly balanced from flavor to texture.

Crunchy, nutty and sweet maple candies pecans were definitely a hit and a must, added lots of irresistible yumminess to the salad. Apple, celery, dried cherries and sharp cheddar were so tasty together, a bed of peppery arugula bound all the flavors together. Yum!
