Mixed Greens with Herb Goat Cheese and Wildflower Honey Vinaigrette

I have loved every cheese that I received from Ile De Franceand I couldn’t wait to try the herb goat cheese. I decided to make a simple salad with a light vinaigrette to showcase the creamy texture of the goat cheese as well as the wonderful herb flavor . I recently bought some wildflower honey vinegar from the farmer’s market and decided to use it to make a simple vinaigrette to go with the salad. The combination of flavors and textures from the creamy and flavorful goat cheese and this vinaigrette were amazing together. I can’t wait to make this salad again for lunch tomorrow.

Salad:
  • Mixed greens
  • Cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • Red onion, sliced
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Ile De France Goat Cheese with Herbs

Place the lettuce in a bowl then top with the tomatoes, onion, sunflower seeds, and chunks of the goat cheese.

Vinaigrette:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp wildflower honey vinegar
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste

Mix all of the ingredients together and whisk until well combined. Let the dressing sit for at least 1 hour so the flavors have time to mingle.

Mix the dressing well then drizzle over the salad. Toss until the salad is evenly coated with the vinaigrette. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
