I thought I would share with you a summery salad today. If you're dreading falls approach, make this salad - you'll definitely feel summery when you eat it! The salad is also very simple and great to make on a work night. You could even add some grilled chicken or fish and you would have a complete meal!
- Mixed greens
- goat cheese, crumbled
- toasted pecans (I tossed mine with some cayenne pepper, brown sugar and olive oil after I toasted them)
- balsamic vinaigrette
For the vinaigrette:
Mix together 1/2 cup olive oil, 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar or lemon juice, 1 small clove garlic, minced, 1 tbsp dijon mustard, 1/8 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp black pepper in a glass jar, blender or food processor. Shake, blend or whirl until smooth. Drizzle over your salad and enjoy!
Try this vinaigrette tonight on your salad! Its delicious and only takes a couple minutes to make. Enjoy!
