The tart-sweet flavors of this salad and dressing complement rich and earthy main dishes and chewy hearth breads. Substitute baby spinach or mesclun mix for the baby greens or use feta in place of the goat cheese. Refrigerate any unused dressing for later use.


5 tablespoons
lemon juice
2 tablespoons
olive oil
1 tablespoon
garlic (minced)
1 tablespoon
shallot (minced)
1 tablespoon
Mustard, Dijon
2 teaspoons
chia seeds
1 teaspoon
1 pinch
1 pinch
black pepper, ground
5 ounces
greens (baby)
beet (peeled and shredded)
1 1/2 cup
strawberries (sliced)
1 cup
cheese, goat (crumbled)


Whisk together all of the dressing ingredients (lemon juice through black pepper) in a small bowl and set aside.

In a large bowl, gently toss the baby greens, beets and strawberries with a few tablespoons of dressing. Taste and add more dressing if desired. Top with the goat cheese crumbles before serving.
