It’s finally spring and many stores, farms, and gardens are full of fresh, tender spring vegetables!

This is the perfect time to experiment with new salads.   Here’s a savory & sweet salad to try:

 

 

Goat Cheese and Pear Salad

  • 1 4oz package of Herbed Goat Cheese (or any soft, mild cheese)
  • 2 pears, sliced or chopped
  • 2 cups grapes, whole of halved
  • 1 large head of green or red-leaf lettuce
  • Salty roasted nuts or seeds
  • ¼ cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • Olive Oil

Rinse lettuce, and then tear it into bite-sized pieces.  Add goat cheese and vinegar, then drizzle with olive oil toss.  Add remaining ingredients, toss lightly, and serve with your favorite warm, crusty bread.
