Strawberry Goat Cheese Salad

This time of year is my favorite at the Farmer's Market. So many bright fruits and vegetables make their way to the stands, I tend to go a little nuts. Some fresh strawberries showed up a few weeks ago, so I decided to make a gentle salad highlighting them. I found a light and sweet honey goat cheese at HEB which I thought would be the perfect pair- it was!

Strawberry Goat Cheese Salad
16 ounces spring green mix
8 ounces sliced strawberries
11 pound chicken breast, grilled
3 ounces honey goat cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup pecan halves
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste

Toss greens, strawberries, chicken, goat cheese and pecans together in a large bowl. Whisk together oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper and toss in salad. Enjoy the fresh flavors!

This sounds so good! I love that you added chicken to this! I work with Chavrie goat cheese and i see a lot of the strawberry/goat cheese salads but the chicken make this super healthy meal. Thanks! P.S. I love that apron, where did you get it?

Last night we made a strawberry, goat cheese, and walnut salad. We dressed it with walnut oil and balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper. It was DELICIOUS and I truly think the walnut oil (and in-season strawberries) made all the difference. Yum.
