Orange and Goat Cheese Salad

Whenever I make salads, I focus on two key attributes: delicious toppings and a solid topping-to-lettuce ratio. Without tasty toppings, the chances I’ll truly enjoy my salad are somewhat slim. This Orange and Goat Cheese Salad has exactly these characteristics. The oranges and tomatoes brighten the salad, while the walnuts and goat cheese add a creamy element. There are also enough healthy toppings so that each bite of lettuce includes some element of fruit, cheese, or nuts. It’s hearty enough to eat on its own for lunch or it can be enjoyed as a side dish with dinner.

Making salads with healthy, hearty ingredients adds more dimension to a salad. When making a salad, I like to include at least two vegetables or fruits other than lettuce, nuts, cheese, and a light dressing. Each ingredient should add a specific flavor without overwhelming the entire dish. A light balsamic dressing is all you need to dress a salad without detracting from the other ingredients. This Orange and Goat Cheese Salad has all of these elements and is a perfect way to enjoy all of these delicious flavors.

    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
