Instructions for healthy Baby Arugula, Strawberries and Chiquita Banana Salad Recipe

In a nonstick skillet, toast pecans over medium-high heat until hot and fragrant. Sprinkle sugar over the pecans and stir until sugar is melted and the pecans are evenly coated. Remove from heat and spread glazed pecans in a single layer on a sheet of wax paper or nonstick foil; cool to room temperature. In a glass jar with a tight fitting lid, combine oil, lemon juice, mustard and salt to make the dressing; shake vigorously to combine. Place baby arugula and green onion in a large salad bowl and toss with about half of the dressing. Divide dressed greens among individual salad plates; top with sliced bananas and strawberries. Drizzle remaining dressing over salads to taste, sprinkle with glazed pecans and fresh ground pepper. Serve immediately.

Serving Suggestions: Top with grilled salmon or shrimp for a delicious main dish salad.

Beverage Pairings: Try with a glass of Prosecco.
