This is another favorite around the LBB household: Baked Goat Cheese Salad
If you don’t like goat cheese….good….more for the rest of us!
It’s a quick and easy meal to quickly throw together. Sometimes it morphs into different variations but the basic ingredients remain the same.
Crumbled Goat Cheese
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Mixed Greens for Salad
I make my own balsamic vinaigrette from scratch (recipe found here).
Optional: Grilled Chicken, Pine Nuts
PREHEAT OVER TO 350 DEGREES
First I take a handful of tomatoes and slice them to butterfly and lay them out onto parchment paper on a baking pan.
I drizzle olive oil over the tomatoes, add some Italian Seasoning, and then add the crumbled goat cheese. If I have the pine nuts I’ll add those too.
Place into the oven for about 10 to 15 minutes until the cheese starts to brown slightly. Then remove from oven.
Create a large bed of lettuce:
Use a spatula to lift of sections of the baked goat cheese/tomato mixture and add over the greens. Drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette or any other vinaigrette you prefer:
Try adding in grilled chicken too!
Here’s a variation from my Instagram account…with grilled chicken, artichoke hearts and a side of capers. Everything but the kitchen sink:
