Buttermilk and cheese offer a tangy counterpoint to the sweet berries.
2 tablespoons Champagne vinegar
2 tablespoons fat-free buttermilk
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 (3-ounce) package soft goat cheese
6 cups torn romaine lettuce
2 cups trimmed arugula
3/4 cup fresh blueberries
3/4 cup fresh raspberries
1/2 cup hulled fresh strawberries
How to Make It
Combine first 7 ingredients in a blender or food processor; process until smooth. Combine romaine and remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Drizzle goat cheese mixture over lettuce mixture; toss gently to coat. Serve immediately.
I could not find champagne vinegar & used red wine vinegar instead. This recipe looked yummy with all the fresh berries so I made it for a large church get together. There were many salads to choose from, but I had no left overs...no need to say more! It was a hit.
I love this recipe! When my husband is out of town it is the first thing I make for dinner. He likes it too but I could eat this 2 or 3 times a week. I often saute some chicken and shallots to serve as a meal with baguette or french roll. I have also added beets, avocado, and grilled artichokes when I have them on hand. Really perfect when berries are in season, it just tastes like summer to me. Also, any left over dressing is great on a side salad if you have some left over.
This was a nice way to use summer berries other than in a dessert. I followed the recipe but didn't have any arugula. I think the peppery bite would have been nice, though. The only thing I would change next time is to use less honey. We found the dressing to be a littlte too sweet.
This salad ROCKS! We LOVED it! It's a snap to prepare and is so delicious. We ended up just dipping the berries in the dressing while we waited for the rest of dinner to finish. Like the other reviewer, I couldn't find champagne vinegar and substituted white balsamic to excellent result. If berries weren't so spendy, I would make this all the time! A worthy splurge! Make this!
