Summer salad



This last weekend in San Francisco was perfection.  The weather couldn’t have been any nicer.  When the weekend rolls around each week, I am always excited to have extra time to cook and be creative in the kitchen.  Going to farmers markets and finding the freshest ingredients just makes me happy.

This last weekend- I created a perfect summer salad, so I thought I would share.

There is something about the combination of fresh cherries, sweet corn, peppery arugula, salty goat cheese and a balsamic vinaigrette that just goes well together.

Cherry, Corn, Arugula and warm Goat Cheese Salad

Fresh cherries- pitted
Fresh corn
Arugula
Goat cheese

Cut pieces of goat cheese (I use a log kind) and coat each piece with breadcrumbs.
Bake (around 350 degrees) in the oven for about 10 minutes.

Mix olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper and Dijon mustard together to make simple vinaigrette.  Toss with arugula, corn, and cherries.  Place baked goat cheese on top.

How delicous!You know I've never taken the time to bread my goat cheese for salad but I will now. A few nights ago I tried Blue Oak Farms deer tongue lettuce with pecorino cheese and garlic and lemon vinaigrette. It was quite good but my favorite salads always have goat cheese and seasonal fruit. Thank you for the recipe. Shiree'

So I tried this this other night.
Now I have the whole family wanting it again tonight.
You make it so easy.
I can't believe that you can be such an amazing designer and such a good cook too.
I guess they go hand in hand.
