Autumn Arugula Salad with Bay Blue

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon maple syrup

1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Pinch of sea salt

Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

5 ounces arugula

2 fuyu persimmons, thinly sliced

½ cup fresh pomegranate seeds

½ cup toasted pecans

4 ounces crumbled Point Reyes Bay Blue

 

For vinaigrette: In a small bowl, combine balsamic, Dijon and maple syrup. Slowly add olive oil, whisking constantly to incorporate.  Season with salt and pepper.  Adjust sweetness with more maple syrup, if desired.

 

In a large bowl, toss arugula with salad dressing, a little bit at a time, until salad is dressed to your liking.  Add persimmons, pomegranate and toasted pecans, tossing gently to combine. 

 

Place salad on serving plate, top with Bay Blue and serve.
