Preparation for Strawberry Goat Cheese Salad
- To make the dressing, combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl or mason jar and whisk them together until the olive oil and balsamic vinegar emulsify, which means they are well combined and no longer distinct from one another.
- You should taste the dish and make any necessary adjustments to the flavor by adding additional balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, and/or olive oil as desired.
- Place some mixed greens in the bottom of a big salad dish. On top of the greens, put some strawberries, cucumber, red onion slices, walnuts, and goat cheese.
- When you are ready to serve the salad, sprinkle the dressing over it and toss it gently to blend the flavors, or serve it with the dressing on the side. Enjoy!
