It is freezing cold up here in Toronto and seems like this winter will never end. The depressing reality is that February has not even arrived yet, so there is still plenty of winter ahead. With that in mind, I am craving food that reminds me of summer. This salad is full of bright and fresh flavors. Arugula is a wonderful green and I love its peppery taste that goes really well with the fresh apple slices. The salty feta and crunchy pine nuts round out this salad. The dressing used is a Roasted Blueberry Vinaigrette and the recipe for that dressing can be found here.
