Wash all produce.

In a large bowl, combine arugula, berries, apple, and pecans. Gently toss to combine. Be careful not to bruise the berries.

In a medium size bowl, whisk together the juice of the lemon, the local honey, basil, salt, and pepper. Once all of that is combined, pour slowly and whisk in the olive oil. This is your salad dressing.
