Posted by Theresa Eichers on

Ingredients

3 handfuls of mixed green lettuce

10 strawberries, tops removed and sliced

1 small container of goat cheese

1 egg

1 cup freshly made bread crumbs

1/2 cup grapeseed oil

1/2 cup olive

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1 tsp honey

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

Preperation

In a large bowl, toss together the lettuce and strawberries. Set aside.

Cut goat cheese into small pieces, about the size of 2 tbsp. Roll the piece of goat cheese into a ball in your hands and then gently mold into a disk shape. Repeat this process for the remaining goat cheese and set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and set aside.

Place the bread crumbs into another small bowl.

Dip each of the pieces of goat cheese in the egg wash and then into the bread crumb mixture. Using your fingers, make sure the bread crumbs are firmly into the goat cheese and set aside.

Heat the grapeseed oil in a small skillet over medium high heat. Lightly fry the goat cheese rounds for about a minute on each side until they are golden brown and are just slightly melted on either side but still retain their shape. Remove from oil and set aside.

Top the salad with the fried goat cheese.

In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, balsamic, honey, salt and pepper. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and serve immediately.

 onions over the dough and scatter goat cheese on top. Starting with a long side, roll the dough into a log. Cut into 12 slices and place in the prepared muffin tin.

Bake until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes.
