Mixed Greens Salad with Strawberries and Goat Cheese

I made a Mixed Greens Salad with Strawberries and Goat Cheese for Charly's Baby Shower.  It's a recipe that I came up with a long time ago, and I thought it would be beautiful on the table at the luncheon.  It is a simple recipe to make and looks elegant on the table.  The flavors of the goat cheese, strawberries, and candied pecans all go really well together.  I also use a poppy seed dressing which adds that extra bit of sweetness to the salad, and goes well with the chicken salad and saffron shrimp. 

Mixed Greens Salad with Strawberries and Goat Cheese


1 large box of mixed greens from Costco or your grocery store 1lb
1 lb sliced strawberries
1 1/2 bags candied pecans or walnuts
6 oz goat cheese (crumbled)
1 1/2 bottles Brianna's Poppy Seed Dressing


Put your mixed greens in a large bowl.

Add your sliced strawberries, candied pecans, and goat cheese.

Start with one bottle of the poppy seed dressing and start tossing your salad.  Add more dressing if necessary.

Serves 20

You can cut all of the ingredients in half for a smaller crowd.  Also, if this had been the only salad,  It would not have served as many people, but we also had a ceasar salad, so people were taking a little of both.  We did not have much of this left, so it went over pretty well.  I hope that you like this recipe.  I always love hearing from you.
