It sounds like an odd combination right? Well it kind of is, but trust me you won’t regret pairing them together! I saw this salad in the latest Wegman’s Menus and it intrigued me, so I obviously had to try it. Not to mention the cucumber that was quickly fading into a pile of mush in my crisper…..
Best. Decision. Ever! I couldn’t get enough of this salad this week, it was great a top some greens with cherry tomatoes. Words cannot describe the deliciousness!!! It is also incredibly refreshing and has the perfect flavor combination, a little sweet, a little savory, a little fruit, a little veg, a little cheese, a bit of something for everyone!
Not to mention it is incredibly easy and fast to make!!!
Have I convinced you yet?
I changed it up from the original recipe quite a bit. It originally called or feta cheese, but I had goat cheese in the fridge, so I went with it. I think it was a nice change, but I’ll let you decide what cheese you want to use 🙂
I also used a prepared red wine vinaigrette with a touch of white wine vinegar, but it calls for a prepared white wine vinaigrette. Again, I enjoyed the red wine vinaigrette, but you make the call!
Add the blueberries
Add the vinaigrette
Crumble the goat cheese

Looking for some other summer meals? This is what I’ve been chomping on lately 🙂
Yep goat burgers… I was intrigued when I saw goat at the farmers market for sale, so Andrew and I decided to pick some up and try it! It is VERY lean, I don’t think there was a bit of grease on this burger! Not to mention I made the best burgers yet, that recipe is to come 🙂
Have a good weekend everyone! I am off the a local winery with the boy and perhaps some hiking tomorrow! I love summer and all the time spent outdoors!
What is your favorite summer meal?
