Salad with Goat Cheese

I am all about finding my healthy self. This means eating more vegetables and finding healthier alternatives to calcium that my body can handle. I am forever thankful to the doctor which suggested goat cheese.

A salad of greens, cucumber, zucchini, shredded carrot, and red cabbage is made fantastic with a bit of freshly shredded mild goat cheddar.

The cheese is easier to digest than 'traditional' cheese from a cow and the slightly salty flavor of the one I used for this salad makes a dressing unnecessary. I squeeze a bit of lime or slightly drizzle a great olive oil over the greens and I have a great side for my meal.

QUESTION: What is your favorite kind of cheese?

Erika, this looks and sounds so delicious! I must check if our local market has this type of goat's cheese. I only know the soft variety.
Thank you for sharing the recipe!

Goat cheese is delicious and the salad looks scrumptious! I think I'll be preparing one soon!
I love Swiss cheese on turkey or ham sandwiches, and Gouda just for snacking!

the salad looks delicious! I love all cheese, depending on what I'm eating. Don't think I've ever bought goat cheese, but have eaten it in restaurants. So I'll be looking for it. Thanks for the suggestion! {:-D
