From: EatingWell

Rich, nutty pecans complement the creamy tang of the goat cheese and peppery arugula balances the sweet juicy peaches and drizzle of honey in a simple, satisfying salad that lets the pure flavors of the ingredients shine.

 by 1 person
1/4 cup  finely chopped toasted pecans, (see Tip)
1/2 teaspoon  kosher salt, divided
  Freshly ground pepper to taste
1 4-ounce log  goat cheese
6 cups  baby arugula, (about 4 ounces)
1 tablespoon  extra-virgin olive oil
  Zest and juice of 1 lemon
4   but firm peaches, halved and pitted
4 tablespoons  honey
1. Place pecans in a shallow dish. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Roll goat cheese log in the pecans to coat. Refrigerate the log until firm, if necessary, then cut into 8 rounds.
2. Place arugula in a medium bowl. Add oil, lemon zest and juice and toss to coat; season with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper.
3. Divide the arugula among 4 shallow bowls. Nestle 2 peach halves into each portion of greens, top each half with a round of pecan-crusted goat cheese and drizzle each salad with 1 tablespoon honey.
Tip: To toast chopped pecans, cook in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.

A very good summer salad. Peaches can be substituted with pears.
