Try this deliciously simple salad made with cherries, blueberries, baby spinach, tangy goat cheese and a quick balsamic vinaigrette? Honestly, it doesn’t get much easier than this.
2 tbsps. Balsamic Vinegar
1/3 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
2 cups Cherries (pitted and halved)
4 cups Baby Spinach
1 cup Blueberries
1/3 cup Goat Cheese (crumbled)
1 cup Green Lentils (cooked, drained and rinsed)
1/2 cup Pecans (toasted)
Create your balsamic vinaigrette by combining balsamic vinegar, olive oil, sea salt and black pepper in a jar. Shake well and set aside.
Preheat grill with medium heat. Place your pitted and halved cherries in a bowl and add 2 tablespoons of the balsamic vinaigrette and toss well. Transfer cherries to a grill pan and grill until slightly charred (about 5 minutes).
Place baby spinach in a large salad bowl. Top with grilled cherries, blueberries, goat cheese, lentils and toasted pecans. Drizzle with desired amount of balsamic dressing and serve. Enjoy!
