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!

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.

DONE!

  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.
