If you are making one large salad, combine the salad fixings in a large bowl, except the goat cheese. If you are making individual side salad portions, arrange the salad fixings in individual bowls or on salad plates. I find it best to portion out individual salads so everyone can dress their own.
For one large salad, drizzle with desired amount of vinaigrette, and toss with a tongs, top with crumbled goat cheese and serve immediately. For individual salads, drizzle desired amount over each salad just before serving.
The salad fixing measurements are not exact, use your own judgment on portion size of the number of salads you are making. I can generally get 6-8 good sized side salad portions out of all of those lettuce bags. I highly recommend using the combination of lettuces listed, it just adds great flavor and textures!
For best results, portion individual salads rather than tossing one large.
I have also used walnuts in this salad, and I think pine nuts would be good too!
I have also added a little avocado on top. You could swap out the goat cheese for feta, but I am 100% team goat cheese!
When testing the vinaigrette recipe I tried it with olive oil and it was not great. None of the other flavors came through, it just tasted like olive oil. You could use frozen blueberries in the vinaigrette as well.
The vinaigrette can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.
