We love this very simple and classic Chèvre and berry salad. We try using the highest quality ingredients to be paired with our fluffy Chèvre. Substitute the strawberries for any fresh berry, and substitute the lettuce and/or spinach for any fresh greens! Below are two easy and delicious dressing recipes to try for variety this summer.
Our delicious, mild and creamy fresh Chèvre is the ultimate representation of spring cheesemaking. Making its way from our milking parlor to your plate in less than one week, this soft white cheese speaks freshness. Our chèvre is made from the first milk of the season.
1-6 oz. bag Baby Spinach
1 cup fresh Strawberries, sliced
½ cup Candied Pecans
⅓ cup Balsamic Vinaigrette (can use bottled, but prefer to make Stepladder Creamery’s recipe for Herbed Balsamic Vinaigrette) - see recipe below!
½ cup Stepladder Creamery Fresh Chèvre, crumbled
Kosher Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper, to taste
In a large bowl, combine spinach, strawberries and pecans
Drizzle balsamic vinaigrette over the salad, season with kosher salt and black pepper and toss well
Plate salad and top with crumbled Stepladder Creamery Fresh Chèvre
Yield: Serves 2 as entree or 4 as starter
