Arugula radicchio salad with pear and salami

Arugula radicchio salad with pear and salami

Sometimes you just have a lot of salami and pears in your house due to your recent charcuterie photo shoot. I fully realize this is uniquely a Me Problem, but for a moment, let’s pretend that this is an universal experience and you too end up in the kitchen on a random Tuesday saying, “Salami, pear. Pear . . . salami?” as you ponder possibilities for sandwiches and salads. (Thanks for doing this exercise with me. I now feel seen.)

I knew that salami is delicious with arugula and radicchio, so the pear was the wild card pearing here (sorry, not sorry). Add some goat cheese crumbles, and it’s a perfect fall salad. If goat cheese is not your favorite, feta or parmesan would also work here.

Hope you enjoy!

For 4 entree salads:

  • 1 head radicchio, chopped
  • 4 cups baby arugula
  • 4 ounces salami, sliced
  • 2 pears, sliced
  • 4 ounces goat cheese crumbles
  • Olive oil
  • Lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Assemble radicchio, arugula, salami, and pear slices in 4 bowls. Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Top each salad with goat cheese crumbles and serve.
