Recipe: Fresh Greens with Goat Cheese and Honey-Lemon Dressing

This dressing is simple—no fancy fruity flavors or vinegars, just nature's own luscious fat, acid, sweetness, and spices to garnish a spring harvest.

    • 4 cups of fresh salad greens
    • 2 ounces of fresh goat cheese (chevre)
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 1 tablespoons honey
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • ¼ cup of dried cranberries (or other dried fruit)
    • ¼ cup walnuts or almonds, roughly chopped
    • salt and pepper to taste

Place greens, nuts, and dried fruit in a large salad bowl. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the honey, olive oil, and lemon juice. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Toss the salad with the dressing and crumble the goat cheese on top.
