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!
