Best Berry and Goat Cheese Salad

6 servings
10 min

Fresh and delicious berry salad! This salad is sublime. It hits all the taste buds with a little sweet, tangy, earthy, salty, and tart- absolutely satisfying! It is simple with just the right flavors and something you can feel good about eating all year around. When it comes to salads I like one solid theme and not too complicated. Even when I make a salad a main meal I don’t like to have 100 ingredients in the bowl that overwhelm the taste of the greens. To me, a salad is a way to eat greens with a few accompaniments that add a little extra flavorful. Maybe you love a million things in your salad? If so, comment and let me know how you like your salads and why. I always love to get ideas and hear how other people like different dishes.


Homemade Salad Dressing for the WIN!

I love using this homemade dressing for other salads as well. It comes together in minutes with a few fresh ingredients and a few shake, shake, shakes in a jar with a lid. It only takes minutes to make and you know exactly what you are getting. Have you ever looked at the ingredient list in most bottled dressings- yikes! The taste of homemade salad dressing is simple and adds the perfect touch to any salad.

This salad is a no brainer! Make it with any meal and please a crowd.

    This dressing looks great. I was searching for a recipe to use these "Pine Berries" I just bought at the grocery store. They only had a small selection and I read that they are a cross between pineapple and strawberries. Sounds interesting to go into a salad with goat cheese, right? Let me know if you get to work with them I would love to see your creation.

    For now I'll just toss them in as if they were strawberries or spread with fig on a cracker.
