I really enjoyed this. I've never loved arugula, but bought it on a whim at the farmer's market. I really liked it in this salad. I didn't have french green beans, so used regular. I tried to follow the recipe as close as possible, though, since no one else had reviewed it. I'd never roasted tomatoes - yum! This recipe was outside of the box for me, and I loved it!
Not a big fan of this one - the only way i can describe the flavor is odd. Too much feta, the garlic is too strong.
This salad is fantastic. I made it for our supper club last night and apparently I should have made more because there wasn't an ounce left over! I had to put roasted sunflower seeds instead of pine nuts because I couldn't find them anywhere. The dressing is delicious and all the flavors together are divine!
I took a twist on this one by grilling my green beans and tomatoes slow and low. It turned out great!
this was DELICIOUS! i ended up not using all 6 ounces of feta cheese, that may have been too much. Also, next time i would use a lot more cherry tomatoes, 12 was simply not enough! I cut up a leftover grilled chicken breast and mixed it into the salad, tasted GREAT with the "honey mustard" type dressing.. This salad fed 3 as a meal so could feed 6 as a side dish easily. Seriously all the flavors in this were AWESOME. you have GOT to make this!!
Okay, I didn't have green beans, didn't have feta. Made this with roasted asparagus and brie.....this was to die for! I can't imagine it could be more delicious with the green beans and feta....we were fighting over the left overs (teenage boys if that tells you how good this was). I grilled chicken marinated in this dressing and the whole thing was served warm. Will be making this again and again!
What a random collection of ingredients! They come together so well and the salad is just delightful. I found the dressing a bit thick so I added a T of water to it and cut the garlic to one clove. I added some chicken tenders seasoned with Italian seasoning and it made for a filling main dish. I took the advice of others and did a full pint of cherry tomatoes but the cook time was closer to 3 hrs. I am not sure the pine nuts were necessary as they got lost in the other ingredients. If you are looking for some crunch, you might need to choose a larger nut. I'll be making this again.
I was getting a little burnt out on salad, until this came along!!! Great flavor combo, and the dressing was wonderful. I cut back on the feta after reading the reviews, and added maybe 3oz which I think was a good call. Other then that, followed recipe as stated and loved it. Thank you Andypoc!!
