I love salads! I know you may think it strange to have such a declaration for a bowl of vegetables – even my husband looks at me like I’m a bit crazy when I order one at a restaurant. Despite my salad shaming I order it anyway, especially if I see a Warm Goat Cheese Salad on the menu. Soft and creamy cheese with a mild flavor and lightly fried…what’s not to love?!
A Warm Goat Cheese Salad comes in a variety of manners, and since it’s officially fall, I decided to make this using some of the seasons bounty. The warm and crispy goat cheese rounds sit on a bed a peppery arugula, juicy pears, candied pecans, bitter/sweet pomegranates, and dressed with a tangy white balsamic vinaigrette. This my friends, is not merely just a salad… this dish has dimension! It hits all of your flavor profiles, giving you a more satisfied flavor experience… an it’s a salad! So pull up a chair, pour yourself a nice glass of white wine, and enjoy!
