With summer in full swing around here, we like to take things nice and slow. I guess you can already tell that by the fact that I've not posted in a while! Sorry, friends. We've been "sleeping in" a little, taking day trips to spend time with old friends and we've tackled a few projects around the house. Since we've been moving at a slower pace, we tend to eat dinner a little later and my dishes always center around seasonal ingredients. In a recent addition of Southern Living, I saw a beautiful salad made with fresh lettuces, strawberries and goat cheese. I loved all the ingredients and was inspired to make my own version.
I combined my favorite greens (spinach, romaine and butter lettuce) then tossed in the strawberries and cucumbers. Sauteeing the goat cheese was easy and I added grilled chicken to make this salad into a complete meal. Lastly, I blended up the strawberry, poppy seed dressing. The combination of flavors with the smokey, grilled chicken along with the creamy goat cheese and sweet dressing made a delicious meal. This was one beautiful, easy recipe for the slow, lazy days of summer.
