Warm Goat Cheese Salad

Warm Goat Cheese Salad

Most people are turned off by salads, they seem dull and boring, and with so many restaurants serving up salads that just don´t cut it, this is very understandable. For me, eating salad is something I do everyday, I love all styles of salads, considering that they are somewhat healthy and deliver a BIG flavor. I am not a fan of ice berg lettuce with ranch dressing, as good as it sounds, it just doesn´t do it for me. I am always playing around with different types of ingredients when I am making salads, trying to find new flavors that work together, that ultimately deliver that wow-factor. This warm goat cheese salad is definitely one of those salads. It has a combination of simple yet tasty ingredients, a perfectly balanced flavor, and a big hit in my household. As always, the main key to always serving up a great salad, is to use the freshest and highest quality ingredients you can find.

  1. Boy, this salad looks wonderful!!! I love the fried goat cheese! And I’ve never added dates to a green salad, but I must try this, too.

  2. Oh my word, I am literally drooling at this recipe! Goat’s cheese is an absolute favourite and warm with all those yummy vegetables and seeds! I never thought to add dates, but it makes perfect sense 😋
