About

I am a new convert to goat cheese. I love the creamy texture and slightly tart flavor. It’s a wonderful change from the usual feta, blue or Gorgonzola cheese I typically see in these kinds of fruity salads.

Goat cheese works so well in this salad. Add crunchy, roasted, sliced almonds and sweet mandarin oranges to have a colorful, healthy and light salad that is low in calories and tastes great!
