Organic Spring Mix with Herbs https://greenelly.com/product/olivias-organic-spring-mix-with-herbs-5-oz/ (6 cups)
Assorted Vegetables (such as bell peppers, zucchini, and red onions, 3 cups chopped)
Cherry Tomatoes (1 cup)
Goat Cheese (1/2 cup, crumbled)
Walnuts (1/2 cup, toasted)
Olive Oil (1/4 cup for roasting + 2 tablespoons for dressing)
Balsamic Vinegar (3 tablespoons)
Honey (1 tablespoon)
Garlic (2 cloves, minced)
Salt (to taste)
Black Pepper (to taste)
Steps to Prepare:
Roast the Vegetables: Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Toss the chopped vegetables and cherry tomatoes in 1/4 cup of olive oil, salt, and black pepper. Spread them on a baking sheet in a single layer. Roast in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until tender and slightly caramelized. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.
Prepare the Dressing: While the vegetables are roasting, whisk together 2 tablespoons of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, minced garlic, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.
Toast the Walnuts: In a dry pan, toast the walnuts over medium heat for about 5 minutes or until they’re golden and fragrant. Keep an eye on them to prevent burning. Remove from heat and set aside.
Assemble the Salad: In a large bowl, gently toss the organic spring mix with herbs with the warm roasted vegetables, half of the goat cheese, and the dressing until everything is evenly coated.
Serve: Transfer the salad to serving plates or a large platter. Sprinkle the toasted walnuts over the top along with the remaining goat cheese.
Optional Additions: For extra protein, consider adding slices of grilled chicken or quinoa. A sprinkle of fresh herbs like basil or parsley can also enhance the flavor profile.
