More Goat Cheese Love

 Goat Cheese Salad

Fix your favorite mix of greens and veggies for the salad part.

I use a mix of baby  spinach and iceberg or romaine and iceberg for the greens.  

The veggies I add depend on the season.

For the goat cheese part, using two 1 ounce portions of goat cheese per person, shape portions into a ball, then flatten slightly into a disc.
Roll the edges of each disc in chopped walnuts..

At this point you can gently warm them in a skillet with a little oil, or serve them as is.

Place on top of you salad.

Drizzle with a balsamic vinaigrette.

Basic vinaigrette recipe:

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 scant teaspoon mustard
1 teaspoon sugar
salt to taste
4 tablespoons oil, dripped in slowly whisking all the while to create an emulsion

Note:  for a sweet sour dressing use equal parts vinegar and sugar, i.e. in this recipe use 2 tablespoons sugar.
