Butter Leaf + Goat Cheese Salad

I'm putting it out there, I love salads!  There's nothing better than a simple tasty salad and last night I made myself just that.
Ingredients
Sweet Red Butter Leaf
Spanich
Goat Cheese
Sliced Almonds (I like candies walnuts too)
Craisins or fresh fruit (i.e. Blueberries, Strawberries, Pear, etc.)
Balsamic
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper

Mix first five ingredients in a bowl
 Drizzle desired amount of balsamic and olive oil 
Add salt & pepper to taste

If you choose to use a pre-made salad dressing I like Ken's Balsamic with Honey salad dressing.

After dinner I might have indulged in the best store bought gelato. If you haven't tried TALeNTI run to the store and buy it today.


Shout out to another Tahoe blogger :) Arica was on my Tough Mudder Team and is the mommy to a furry pup named Wilson. She's also a great cook! Yesterday, she shared black bean mushroom burgers on homemade jalapeno cheddar bread. Check out her oh so good for you meals over at Yummy Fixins.

    1. I usually skipped because of the price too, but I decided to splurge this week and now I'm hooked! Time to find some coupons

  3. I make a salad really similar to this and I think I'd eat it almost every single night. Delicious! My husband doesn't like goat cheese though, so I usually throw in some blue cheese or cut up brie.

    That Talenti gelato is to die for... plus I love anything caramel so that's a flavor I have to try.

  4. I have to admit I love salads...when other people make them or if I eat them out. This is another thing I need to work on this year :) We love gelato, I am going to have to try this one the next time I see it at the store!
