Goat Cheese Salad

By: Remy Raccuia

Serves: 1

Prep Time: 10 minutes`

Throwing together a salad is a quick way to make a healthy weekday side. In order to do this, I like to add cheese, seasonal fruit, or something sweet, and sometimes even all three! This summer I have been loving this goat cheese salad with a lemon vinaigrette – it is so bright and refreshing, just like the season. 

Salad Ingredients:

  • 1 head of romaine, chopped
  • ¼ cup goat cheese
  • 5 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Handful of candied pecans
  • Handful of craisins
  • Dressing Ingredients:
  • 2 lemons juiced
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • Pinch of garlic salt and black pepper

Instructions:

  1. Start by washing the romaine and then begin chopping.
  2. Add the chopped lettuce to a large salad bowl and begin adding the goat cheese, tomatoes, pecans & craisins.
  3. Set the bowl aside and begin juicing the two lemons into a small bowl. 
  4. Once the lemons are juiced, whisk in dijon mustard and olive oil until all three ingredients have mixed together smoothly. 
  5. Add garlic salt & pepper to taste.
  6. Pour the dressing into the large salad bowl and toss until fully dressed.
