It's all in the fixin's

I got to thinking about how I eat a salad just about every single night of the week and how sometimes it just takes some experimenting to figure out what kind of salad makes your taste buds water...


This is just an easy-to-make salad that you can whip together in no time flat!  It's great paired with just about any entree.

You will need:

Spring Salad Mix
Goat Cheese
Dried Cranberries
Walnuts or Pine nuts
Rosemary & Garlic Dressing or Brianna's Asiago Caesar Dressing
Fresh Cracked Pepper

Take some spring salad mix (this is my personal favorite, but
you can use whatever kind you please) and place it in a bowl.

Then crumble some goat cheese over it, add a small amount of
dried cranberries and add either walnuts or pine nuts.
(I went with walnuts because that's what I had on hand!)

This is the dressing I used on mine.  I picked it up at Fresh Market.
It is a dressing, marinade and bread dip - all in one!
(As you can tell I like it since the bottle is almost gone!)



Another favorite dressing of mine is Brianna's Asiago
Caesar Dressing...HOLY MOLEY IS IT GOOOOOOOD!



If you haven't ever tried any of the Brianna Dressings...
YOU NEED TO!

And their website is fabulous, too!
They have recipes for every one of their dressings/marinades!
And a lot of them are submitted by their consumers!

Anyways, that is my "go to" salad that I make majority of nights
and it is light and delicious.  A lot of times I'll just make myself
a big bowl of that salad to eat by itself!  Adding some grilled chicken
would be an excellent addition as well!
Let me know if anyone tries that combination!


Bon appetit!

P.S. - I can't wait to get my Le Creuset bakeware in the mail!
Thanks again Dusty Lu!

  1. Yum! Another good salad is romaine lettuce with candied walnuts, mandarin orange slices, strawberries and a berry vinaigrette. It's sweet, but great paired with something like pork.
