SARAH’S STRAWBERRY PECAN GOAT CHEESE SALAD — This hearty salad feature fresh berries, dried cranberries, toasted almonds, candied pecans and crumbled goat cheese, all tossed in a sweet and tangy raspberry vinaigrette.
When it comes to salads, I like mine packed with all kinds of flavors, texture and ingredients, which is why Sarah’s Strawberry Pecan Goat Cheese Salad is my all time favorite salad!
A few months ago, my friend Sarah posted a picture on Facebook of her latest salad obsession, and everything that went into it. I went and purchased all of the ingredients almost immediately.
Which is really saying something…..because while I love eating a beautiful salad like this one, I hate making salads. There’s just SO much chopping, and I don’t always feel like I’m getting a good return on my investment.
But the great thing about Sarah’s salad is that you can purchase almost every ingredient already prepped and ready to toss into a bowl. If I want to, I can get away with only slicing strawberries when I make this salad.
And of course, this salad is also amazingly delicious, refreshing and healthy. It pretty much has everything I could ever hope for in a salad.
Okay, the raspberry vinaigrette part is actually pretty easy, and only takes about five minutes to do. But if you’re otherwise in a hurry, or just lazy like me, you can go with prepared salad greens, candied nuts and salad dressing.
Sarah also sometimes adds chopped green apple to her salad. And I say, go for it! But by now you know how I feel about too much chopping.
I don’t usually crave salad. I tend to crave things like French fries and cheesecake. But I actually crave this salad. It’s that good!
So if you’re looking for an easy, tasty way to freshen up your usual salad routine, you’ve got to try Sarah’s Strawberry Pecan Goat Cheese Salad!
