What is the calorie count?
I have made this salad multiple times and always get wonderful comments.
Do you think that feta cheese would work here instead of goat cheese? Thanks
I think that’s a perfectly fine substitution–they both have a bit of tang! Thanks for your question, and let us know how it turns out if you try it that way!
This was just wonderful! The goat cheese all stuck to the bottom a bit too much but that just gave us a delightful surprise at the end!!
What a great salad! I had no honey mustard so I used Dijon instead and added a little sugar. Otherwise I made it exactly according to the recipe and it was delicious.
I needed a way to use up some blue cheese. OMG! We loved this so much – the dressing is outstanding. My mistake was not having crusty bread to soak up the lingering dressing on the plate/bowl. Thank goodness it makes more dressing than you can use. I’ve been asked to make the salad again tonight for dinner. By Tuesday we’ll be in salad rehab for being addicted to the salad dressing. Who knew?!
A friend of mine brought this salad to dinner the other night only she used fresh blueberries and crumbled blue cheese, instead of cranberries and goat cheese, although I think that combination would be just as good…..it was delicious !!!!!
This is the best salad ever !!!!!!
Absolutely amazing the way all of the different flavours are so identifiable and work so well together. I used 18 year old basalmic vinegar for the dressing. Just a stunning salad
I made this salad for the first time a month ago and I’ve been eating it non-stop ever since. It is delicious!
As for crumbling chevre- I froze mine for an hour or two, then cut it with a knife and sprinkled it on the goat cheese while it was still kind of frozen. Work fast before it defrosts and turns (deliciously) creamy again!
I’m making this salad now for mothers day and I was wondering. Do you have a method on how to crumble chevre? When I did a little it just mushed up in my fingers. It was refrigerated before so it wasn’t softened. Help me if you can :)
I would say just do the best you can. Yes, it is shmooshy and not crumbly. ~Elise
I made this salad last weekend at the request of one of the pickiest eaters in the universe and she loved it. We all did. Another home run. Thanks Elise!
I like to make something similar, using baby spinach, pecans, mandarin oranges, goat cheese crumbles, red onion slivers, and craisins, with a raspberry walnut vinaigrette. It’s delicious!
Oh, I love the idea of adding mandarin orange segments and using a raspberry vinaigrette!
I’ve been holding on to this recipe for a sunny, warm (ish) day in New Jersey. Today was the day. Well worth the wait…this one is a keeper!
Love, love , love this salad! Am hopelessly addicted to it!!
I made this for a dinner party the other day to rave reviews, thank you so much!
This salad IS the bomb. My girlfriend and I made it on Valentines and we just couldnt stop stuffing face !!! Swapped out the pecans for walnuts but hey thats the beauty of it, you can add and swap out but it still comes out tops.Thanks Elise – you rock :)
I love this salad. I add cubed apples instead of the bell pepper for an additional touch of sweetness and if I make it for a small crowd roll chunks of goat cheese in breadcrumbs and fry it. Yum!
Please tell this fool what “honey mustard” is. Thanks.
You can buy it in the grocery store, in the condiments section. Mustard sweetened with honey. ~Elise
Looks like a great recipe. I’d like to make, but will need to cut proportions since it’s just my husband and I. Does anyone know–can chevre be successfully frozen?
This is truly one of my favorite salads. What better to pair with goat cheese than fruit. I add slices of Bosque Pears to this salad because they are in season and they add beautiful aroma and color to the dish.
