Warm Goat Cheese Salad

I just saw this on a girl for my BYU days, blog. It looks really good, and just the kind of salad that should accompany these cold wintery days. She used goat cheese, but if you're not the goat cheese loving kind, brie would be the next recommendation. Yum!

  • mixed baby greens
  • craisins
  • candied nuts (i used almonds)- and i'm not putting a recipe up on how to do this because i kind of botched it, but it still tasted good.
  • sliced pears (if you don't like pears, I bet strawberries would be really good, too)
  • Goat Cheese, cut a few slices from the log- they usually come in logs at your grocer- and put them on a pan and bake them at 350 for about 5 minutes or until they are super soft. Quickly move them from the pan to the top of your salad and top with the Lemon Vinaigrette dressing.
Lemon Vinaigrette
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
Recipe found on this blog.

  1. I made this for dinner last night and used kiwi for the fruit. I also added sliced green onions. Dad wouldn't try the lemon vinaigrette but I loved it! He used ranch dressing on his salad and liked it that way.
