Summer Berry Salad

Here’s a very simple and deliciously light summer salad…filled with fresh greens, strawberries & blueberries and topped with crunchy toffee pecans and mild goat cheese. I make this quite often – it’s so good!

Summer Berry Salad
1 head red leaf lettuce, washed & chopped
6-8 fresh strawberries, rinsed & sliced
1/2 cup fresh blueberries, rinsed
1/4 cup toffee pecans
1/4 cup Chavrie mild goat cheese crumbles
Vanilla Bean Vinaigrette (recipe follows)

Spread the chopped lettuce on a large platter. Distribute the strawberries, blueberries, toffee pecans & goat cheese crumbles on top of the lettuce. Make the Vanilla Bean Vinaigrette.

Vanilla Bean Vinaigrette
1/2 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Combine vinaigrette ingredients in a jar with a lid. Put the lid on and shake vigorously. Drizzle on salad before serving. Serves 4.
