Salad-Simple and Supreme

If you want me to go on a talking spree, just ask me about this salad.  It is a snap to make but it has the best ingredients and blends together like a dream and it just so good.

It came about, as usual, taking out of refrigerator, whatever I had.

an avocado
a few ounces of cranberry pecan goat cheese

I had been craving the goat cheese and knew that it was going to be an ingredient in whatever I decided to eat.   The only thing missing was strawberries which is what I wanted to use, rather than tomatoes but there were none in the house.

Salad - Simple and Supreme

1 avocado, peeled and chopped
about 6 grape tomatoes, cut in halves
2 ounces of cranberry pecan goat cheese
2 cups of lettuce  (I prefer Romaine to iceberg but I used what I had.)

Dressing:  (I used about a tablespoon of the dressing below.)
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • black pepper to taste

I only made enough for my self.
Place lettuce in small bowl.
Add the avocado, tomatoes and goat cheese.
Gently mix so that goat cheese is spread throughout.
Top with small amount of dressing.
