Strawberry & Goat Cheese Spring Salad

I want to start out by saying that this salad is delicious! Not to mention it’s super easy to make (it takes all of 10 minutes), and is a perfect accompaniment to any main. Or, if you’re like me and need a no-hassle snack, this is your go to.

The combination of sweetness from the strawberries and tartness from the lemon garlic vinaigrette balances the dish nicely. Try it for yourself and let me know what you think!

    I love this salad! I usually do it with spinach because everything else has a strange texture to me. Try pecans with it too!!
