Fried goat cheese salad is a delicious winter vegetable dish. Mesclun greens are tossed with a light Dijon vinaigrette that is studded with sweet grape tomatoes. To properly fry the goat cheese (without it melting), you'll want to make sure that the rounds are very cold. I suggest leaving them breaded in the freezer for at least 30-45 minutes before frying. Also, dental floss is helpful for cutting clean and even rounds. Fried goat cheese salad is as impressive as it is tasty.
