Strawberry and Goat Cheese Salad


After yesterday's scorcher, today's cooler change feels very refreshing. I am still working on my crafts but returned to the kitchen to put together a quick salad for lunch. This strawberry and goat cheese salad is genius in its simplicity and makes most of the best quality ingredients available. I used a slightly sharp and matured goat cheese that balances the sweetness of strawberries and the peppery Asian greens. Drizzled with balsamic and good extra virgin olive oil, this salad is a real winner.
