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.
Sweet Red Butter Leaf
Goat Cheese
Sliced Almonds (I like candies walnuts too)
Craisins or fresh fruit (i.e. Blueberries, Strawberries, Pear, etc.)
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 love love goat cheese whether on crackers or in a salad so yes to this salad even though i am not a huge salad lover. also that gelato always calls out to me in the store but the price makes me put it back. if i did buy a flavor i would buy the sea salt caramel i bet it tastes amazing

    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

  2. Yum! I looooooooove goat cheese. Sadly I can never find it in my town.

  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!

    Your fellow Tahoe bloggers burger and bread sound amazing! I need to check her blog out! Thanks for sharing!

  5. We have been doing a lot more salads this year, I will have to try this one out!
