This is a recipe I created for Calgary Co-op

A quick delicious salad featuring summer fruit and greens!

We have such a short season for fresh fruit in Canada, and this salad is one of my favourite ways to incorporate beautiful BC fruit and local greens.

Enjoy this salad on its own or as a side dish, and get creative with the presentation!


Prep time: 10 minutes
Serves 2-4


Nut free Gluten free

(Nut free optional)



  • 3 cups arugula 
  • 2 nectarines/peaches/apricots/plums, sliced
  • ½ cup basil leaves 
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic reduction/glaze
  • ¼ cup plant-based nut cheese* (I used Nuts For Cheese’s Un-Brie-Lievable)
  • 2 tbsp chopped nuts* (pistachios/almonds/walnut)
  • ⅛ tsp sea salt
  • ⅛ tsp ground pepper

*For a nut-free option use a nut-free vegan cheese (like Violife’s Feta Style), and substitute the nuts with pumpkin seeds.



In a serving bowl/platter, place arugula, sliced fruit, and basil.

Mix together.

Drizzle olive oil and balsamic glaze on top.

Add nut cheese, chopped nuts, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

You can mix and match the fruit you add to this salad!
