A few months ago, Barbara of Vino Luci Style tweeted she was making roasted chicken with strawberries, caramelized pecans and balsamic dressing. She sent out a picture and I was immediately hooked. But since she hadn’t posted the recipe yet, I was forced to imagine how wonderful it tasted.
Although I didn’t get to taste her scrumtious-looking dish, it got me to thinking how yummy strawberries and balsamic are together and I immediately ran to the refrigerator to see if I had any strawberries. I did. I also had some mixed baby greens and goat cheese. And just like that the idea came to me. If I couldn’t have Barbara’s chicken, I could at least have a salad. And I gotta tell you, the salad was delicious. I’ve made it several times since then for family and friends and it’s always a big hit.
So, I want to thank Barbara for inspiring me to make this quick, easy and scrumtious salad. Check out her wonderful blog, maybe it’ll inspire you too.
Strawberry Goat Cheese Salad
- 1 12 oz bag of mixed baby greens
- 6-10 large strawberries, sliced
- 2 oz of plain goat cheese, crumbled
- 2-3Tbsp balsamic vinegar
Rinse and dry the baby greens. Place them into a large salad bowl. Sprinkle the sliced strawberries and crumbled goat cheese over the baby greens. Toss with balsamic vinegar and serve.
