Introduction: Apricot, Bleu Cheese, and Pecan Salad

For a seasonal cook, apricots are a trademark of a spring farmer's market. Soft orange and blush, the fruits beg to be paired with cheeses. Combined with bleu and goat cheese in a savory or sweet dish, their natural sweetness shines. Balsamic brings out their hint of tang. In a savory salad, they go nicely with arugula, spinach, and their similar cousin, prunes.
