Valentine’s Menu Idea: Strawberry Goat Cheese Salad

By  | 

This salad features one of my favorite flavor combinations. We eat it regularly but I think it would also make a fabulous salad for a Valentine’s Day menu. The salad only has three ingredients but it is sooo good.

The greens are a baby spring salad mixture. I add crumbled goat cheese – usually plain but most recently I have been doing an herbed version — and fresh strawberries.

As an option, if I have it in the cupboard, I add trail mix and it’s perfect with these flavors.

For a dressing, I usually either make my own balsamic vinaigrette with balsamic vinegar and olive oil or opt for a creamy poppy seed from the grocery store. Easy!

I think the fresh flavors in this salad make it perfect for a Valentine’s Day menu but I couldn’t resist going over the top. Using a tiny heart shaped cookie cutter I cut the strawberries into hearts and then sliced them in half. I chopped up the leftover cut-outs for Sam’s lunch the next day. 

I absolutely love the way the hearts look in the salad and I am thinking of trying it for other occasions, such as using stars for the 4th of July or tiny maple leafs for Canada Day.
