For the vinaigrette, in a small bowl whisk together first four ingredients. Set aside.
In a small bowl, combine the kidney beans and 2 tablespoons vinaigrette. Toss quickly to flavor the beans, then spoon the beans in to a large serving bowl to form the salad's bottom layer.
Using the same small bowl, toss the cucumber with a little vinaigrette, and add to the serving bowl to form the next layer. Follow the same steps with the tomatoes, chickpeas, and arugula. Finish by sprinkling the cheese and crumbled bacon over the salad.
Chill, preferably for 1 hour, and serve.
