D-Feast Friday: Have I Mentioned My Love of Salads?

I love salads.  I eat a salad probably 4 out of 5 lunches during the week, and I often order them if we go out to dinner (which is almost never, but still).  I found this recipe in one of my Real Simple magazines, and it's got so many of my favorite things, that I felt compelled to share the yummy.  Enjoy!

Roast Beef Salad with Goat Cheese and Balsamic Vinaigrette

How long from ingredients to Nom Nom Nom:  15 minutes            Serves 4

2 small heads Boston lettuce (also called 'butter lettuce'), torn into pieces
12 ounces sliced deli roast beef
1 large beefsteak tomato, cut into wedges
1/2 red onion, sliced
4 ounces soft goat cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
Kosher salt and black pepper

-Divide the lettuce, roast beef, tomato, onion, and goat cheese among bowls.

-In a small bowl, whisk (or use a fork, if you're unfancy) together the oil, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper.  Drizzle over salad.



  1. Sounds delicious. My oldest son, Colin, will love this. He loves salads and roast beef so this is perfecto!

    Thanks for adding to the #DFeast.

  2. Ohhh, I love a good salad, and this one looks SO good! I'd probably opt for something other than roast beef, but still, YUM.

    I should pick up the goods and make this for one of our lunches this weekend.
