3   Vanilla beans - split, scraped
4 cups 948mlLight olive oil
1   Goat cheese log - (abt 10 oz)
1 cup 146g / 5.1ozChopped toasted pecans
1 lb 454g / 16ozArugula leaves - washed, spun dry
  Salt - to taste
  Freshly-ground black pepper - to taste

Recipe Instructions

In a small saucepan over low heat, heat vanilla beans and olive oil very slowly until hot and vanilla is aromatic. Cool, strain, and store refrigerated.

Using either dental floss or a knife dipped in warm water, divide goat cheese log into 8 medallions. Carefully roll in chopped pecans to coat, pressing nuts into cheese so that they adhere. Set aside until ready to assemble the salads.

In a large bowl toss arugula with 3 ounces of the vanilla bean oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste and garnish each serving with one pecan-crusted goat cheese medallion.
