Apple + Walnut + Goat Cheese Salad

Can I make a little confession to you? Sometimes, I really don’t like to eat salads I make at home.  They just don’t seem as spectacular as the ones I get from a restaurant.  I think part of it is, I just can’t decide what temperature I like my lettuce when I’m at home.  I mean- I can’t decide if I like it room temperature or fresh out of the fridge.  But at a restaurant, they just seem to have the salad temperature set jussssssssstttttttt right.  I love the idea of having salads at home because they’re so much cheaper, though.  I bought a bag of romaine stalks from Sam’s recently.  After several blah-ze salads, I wasn’t truly looking forward to our last night of side salads.  In desperation, I searched our fridge for something to give it some pizzaz.  This combo turned out wonderfully.  I liken it to some of the salads I’ve had at Wendy’s, but with a fancier flair.  Enjoy!

Reach For:

1/3 cup candied walnuts

1/3 cup sliced softened goat cheese (chevre) or goat cheese crumbles

Raspberry Vinaigrette (to taste)

Directions:  I’m not going to lie: just mix it all together and toss with Raspberry Vinaigrette.  No sense complicating something so simple.  Enjoy!
