Summer has passed and cantaloupe have been scarce this year. Over the next two weeks, cantaloupe season will wind down just as arugula begins to appear at farmers markets. The eclipse of these two seasons makes for a delicious pairing of arugula and cantaloupe. The peppery arugula and sweet cantaloupe are enhanced by adding crispy bacon and spicy maple pecans. Cantaloupe may be replaced with peaches, figs or any other sweet fruit. Arugula cantaloupe salad complements most meals as a side salad, or it can serve as a main salad with the addition of more pecans and bacon. Flip through the attached list for the full recipe.
