Ingredients

  • 1 log (4 ounces) fresh goat cheese
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 package (5 ounces) spring mix salad greens
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries

  • 4 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup Caesar salad croutons
  • Salad dressing of your choice

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Cut goat cheese into eight slices; brush both sides with olive oil and coat with bread crumbs. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 5-6 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.
In a large bowl, combine salad greens, cranberries, walnuts and bacon; transfer to a platter. Top with cheese and croutons. Serve with dressing of your choice. Yield: 8 servings.
To Make Ahead: This salad is quick to throw together but to save even more time, coat the cheese ahead of time and bake just before serving.
