French Goat Cheese Salad

Happy Tuesday chickies!

Did y'all have a good weekend? Mine was nice and very low key! Friday night, Bryce cooked a favorite recipe: Thai Chicken which we served over mashed cauliflower. It was delicious! Saturday, I went to my cousin Callee's wedding dress fitting. It was a great chance to get to know some of the bridesmaids and her dress was absolutely gorgeous! Saturday night, we cheated on the diet a bit and headed to Pearl for dinner. Finally, Sunday we slept in, ran errands, and watched the Super Bowl at my parents! Slow paced weekends like these are my favorite!

Today I am excited to share a new favorite salad with you! It is so simple and so good. We first had the salad about a month ago, and have made it at least 5 or 6 times since then.

The recipe was shared with us by our friends, Alec and Allison. They made it for us while were all away for a couple's weekend at the guys' hunt club on the Eastern Shore. Alec and Allison spent their honeymoon traveling in Europe and enjoyed this salad several times while they were in France. It is standard fare on French menus and the simplicity is what I think makes it so good! It pairs really well with beef and is a crowd pleaser!

1 oz balsamic vinegar
2 oz olive oil
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
2 tsp dijon mustard
salt & pepper to taste
1 large head of green leaf lettuce
half of a 10.5 oz package grape tomatoes, quartered
4 oz package of goat cheese

Combine balsamic, olive oil, worcestershire, dijon mustard, salt & pepper in measuring cup and mix

Wash lettuce and tear into bite sized pieces. Add tomatoes and toss with dressing.

Top with 2-4 oz of goat cheese (according to your preference). When I've made this salad, I prefer to just buy crumbled goat cheese, but Bryce thinks crumbling it yourself is better. To do that, simply open the package, and crumble the cheese by scraping it with a fork.


What are your go-to salads?
