Spring salad with goat cheese

Strawberry and goat cheese salad

There’s nothing like a fresh spring salad with goat cheese to bring back the summer. It’s quite a simple and healthy meal, or starter. Salads are an art, I love them, I think I always add a little something different each time. No salad is ever the same – just switching up a type of lettuce adds a new texture or flavour, small changes can make a big difference.

Strawberry and goat cheese saladI found that great organic goat cheese at the market and wanted to highlight it, so the the solution I found was… a simple green spring salad. Add strawberries and sunflower seeds for the spring element. The rest is a plain, simple green salad.

The dressing is pretty much always the same in my case, I just change mustard every once in a while and add an element of sweetness like orange juice or maple syrup, in order to cut the vinegar acidity.

Hope you’ll enjoy the freshness!
