This is a wonderful strawberry salad with walnuts and goat cheese added for a delicious twist.

There is something about the combination of goat cheese with strawberries that works perfectly.

The red strawberries against the green spinach or mixed greens makes for a very pretty salad.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 tablespoons pomegranate molasses (available at Middle Eastern groceries)
  • 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon finely minced shallot
  • salt to taste
  • 6 cups spinach or mesclun lettuce mix
  • 1 cup strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 3 ounces soft goat cheese, crumbled (also known as chevre cheese)
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Method

Step 1

For the vinaigrette dressing, whisk together the oil, pomegranate molasses, wine vinegar. Season to taste with salt and set aside.

Step 2

Arrange greens on plates. Top with berries, drizzle with dressing and top with walnuts and crumbled goat cheese. Season with freshly ground pepper. Serve immediately.

Tips:

  • Don’t worry if you can’t find the pomegranate molasses. Just add the same amount of crushed strawberries and a bit of sugar (about 1/2 a teaspoon). It won’t taste exactly the same, but it will still be delicious.

You can replace the strawberries with blueberries if you wish.

This is a wonderful gluten free recipe and it is fairly diabetic friendly as well. If you want a strict diabetes recipe, replace the pomegranate molasses with something like stevia or coconut sugar. Keep in mind though that this recipe, with just 2 tablespoons of the molasses, serves 4, so that doesn’t add much sweet per serving.
