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 was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe
    you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

    people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get
    more. Thanks
