Goat Cheese and Summer Berry Salad

Summer is officially surrounding us, overheating us, and making us eat berries and fruit. This is a really quick, but really interesting salad that pairs well with other traditional, summer fare (grilled meat, corn on the cobb, etc.). The tangy goat cheese compliments the berries well, and the nuts add a great crunch. I don't really have any measurements here (use your judgment--I trust you), and you can really add whatever summer fruit or nuts suit your fancy. This is just the combination I used, but I'm sure others would work just as well.

Goat Cheese and Berry Salad

  • Young lettuces or spring mix
  • Sliced strawberries
  • Whole blackberries
  • Dried cranberries
  • Toasted almonds
  • Crumbled goat cheese
  • Poppyseed dressing
Layer the lettuces, fruit, nuts, and cheese. Serve with the poppyseed dressing.
