A simple light and sweet salad with goat cheese, dried cherries and walnuts. This dish reminds me of being on the beach.

After buying almost this exact salad for 4 each at my local Target store's cafe I decided to buy ingredients to make my own at home. I made my first today and came across this while searching for a dinner recipe using that goat cheese I bought! My version of this salad uses a delicious poppyseed dressing (which I highly recommend as I don't care much for raspberries.) You will love it! Read More

This salad is great as a full meal too. I use dried cranberries instead of cherries and use the Good Seasons Italian Dressing mix but make it with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. The combination of tart sweet salty feta is great. It's one of the few salads where there is rarely a drop left in the bowl after dinner! I am not big on Raspberry Vinaigrette but think the Balsamic is terrific. I don't even add chicken and find is still quite filling because of the walnuts and cheese adding the protein. Read More

This was okay. I did use fresh cherries because that's what I had. I feel like it needed something more. Maybe shallots chopped up into the pre-made dressing. Read More

This is a delicious salad. I am a big fan of sweet/salty leafy/fruit combo salads and this combination really works. I made a few minor adjustments one being crumbled feta for the goat cheese I didn't have and a citrus vinaigrette in place of the raspberry I also didn't have otherwise I would absolutely have made this exactly as written. Salad heaven! Read More

Fabulous! I used fresh cherries instead of dried and sunflower seeds instead of walnuts. Also used raspberry vinaigrette from this site. Read More

I had a salad like this at a restaurant years ago and decided I could make it myself a lot cheaper. I make it all the time - one of our family favorites! I also add thinly sliced tart apples and sometimes even strawberries. Anything goes! Yummy Read More

I too love the salad similar to this at Target. This one is great and just like it when you change the dressing to poppy seed. Yummy! Read More
