I give it a four because as written I think the sweetness is overpowering. Otherwise, the recipe is wonderful. However, I never stick to a recipe exactly as it is written, so here were my changes:
I used 1 tsp of honey and 1 tsp of organic coconut palm sugar (lower glycemic) in place of all of the sugar/honey listed. I also eliminated the lemon juice (I didn't have any on-hand) and added 1/2 tsp of prepared mustard so that the dressing would emulsify. You can really play around with the ingredients a lot. I used plain almonds instead of pecans (didn't have those on-hand either) and I also added a cored, seeded and cut up yellow delicious apple. The avocado is a MUST. You can really use any salad greens you have. I prefer Romaine lettuce, but really anything goes here. If you are sticking with arugula, you might wish to keep the sweetness factor a little higher than I've posted. Got rave reviews from the family! Thanks for the idea!
