When it comes to summer salads, I’m constantly pushing to explore different flavors and textures. This arugula salad happens to feature a favorite combination of mine: a romesco potato mix. The smoky sauce brings the party to this salad, both as a coating for the potatoes but also as a bit of dressing.
My favorite is to toss the salad together while the potatoes are slightly warm. The warm potatoes help to soften the goat cheese, creating an amazing coating for the arugula. Of course, if warm salads aren’t your thing, you could always mix the potatoes in when cool.
Best of all, this salad showcases so many of the items I love from local farms: arugula (Jayleaf), potatoes (River Dog Farms– one of my favorites), walnuts (Full Belly– also amazing), goat cheese (Laura Chenel’s), and olive oil (California Olive Ranch).
