Test Title 1

{yum} blackstone signature salad

i am absolutely in love w/ the signature salad at blackstone brewery. to me ... a salad is a salad. greens, nuts, dressing and maybe some dried fruit. BUT what sets the signature salad apart from all other salads? not 1 but 2 warm almond crusted goat cheese rounds. salivating yet?

in an effort to save a little cash ... i decided to create my own version of the signature salad (oh a gfree - since there's isn't!):

* goat cheese (i bought the original chavrie log)
* finely chopped almonds
* olive oil
* baby greens
* toasted almonds
* dried cherries
* raspberry vinaigrette

prep your space: you'll need 1 small plate for the chopped almonds & 1 small plate to put finished rounds.

slice off about 1/3" of goat cheese and roll it in your hands to create a little patty.
roll the patty in the chopped almonds until it is evenly coated w/ almonds on each side.

heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat.
sauté the rounds for about a minute and a half. flip to warm the other side. careful not to let them melt!

the perfect little signature salad:

baby greens
toasted almonds
dried cherries
raspberry vinaigrette
and ... yummy almond crusted goat cheese rounds!
