Strawberry Goat Cheese Salad

As a gluten free vegetarian, I find myself eating salads quite a bit. My favorite by far is this strawberry goat cheese salad. I could easily eat this salad every day it is that good. This salad is great for both lunch and dinner and could easily be made when entertaining guests. You could easily pay about $8-12 on a single serving of this salad at restaurants or you could make it at home for about the same price. If you’d like to learn how to make this restaurant quality salad continue reading.

Ta-duh, your salad is finished. For all you non-vegetarian types feel free to add chicken or some other type of meat if you want. Overall this strawberry goat cheese salad costs between $15 and $20, however, keep in mind that this makes several servings of salad.
