Arugula, Pear and Cranberry Salad

arugula, pear, and cranberry saladFarmer Monte, the head of our CSA, always includes a recipe with each box. This week, he suggested a salad of arugula and pears. I also found this recipe on the kitchn (yes that’s how they spell it) for a wilted version of the same combination. I’m not a fan of blue cheese, so I decided to go for one of my favorite combinations-feta and dried cranberries. This turned out great! It was a nice salad to accompany an Italian meal.
