goat cheese & strawberry salad

Yep, it’s going to be a 3 post Friday.  I don’t think I’ve ever posted 3 things in 1 day, BUT, if you had eaten what I’ve eaten today…

Which means A LOT.

Like WAY TOO much.

As in COULDN’T STOP MYSELF because it was all so good….

You might post 3 times too!

(I also know that when I fly home tomorrow, Hubs is going on a little guys trip, leaving me with a “girls weekend” except I will be the only one over the age of TWO.  I’m guessing this wont leave much time for posts.  Today may need to hold ya over until Tuesday morning!)

Anywhoo….

Back to YUMMY-VILLE! (before I return to Loonyville…)

Fabulous summer salad option.  Looks pretty, tastes refreshing, lots of bang in presentation and flavor.  Most certainly worthy for a summer BBQ.  (You know, for me to promote a salad, when I rarely eat them, means it HAS to be good! Seriously? LOOK AT IT!)

Goat Cheese and Strawberry Salad

Ingredients:

4 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
8 ounces strawberries, quartered
4 ounces cashews
1 pound baby romaine or buttered lettuce, washed and chopped
¼ cup Yuzu dressing (lemon or lime work, too)
1 tablespoon honey, or agave
1 teaspoon Dijon
½ cup olive oil
Salt and pepper

Directions:

1.      Mix Yuzu with honey and Dijon, whisk in olive oil gradually until all gone.
2.      Assemble lettuce on platter, dress with strawberries, cashews, pour dressing over salad finish with cheese. Add salt and pepper.

Thanks again Thermador and Chef Kyle!
