Hey guys, it’s Crystal from Cooking with Crystal and I’m here today to share you my new favorite salad! I am such a huge fan of this Roasted Grape, Arugula, and Goat Cheese Salad. It brings together some amazing flavors.
After the grapes are roasted with a little olive oil and balsamic, they are delicious tender and sweet.
The goat cheese is the perfect addition of a little creaminess to the crunchy arugula, which makes this your NEW FAVORITE SALAD.
Start with your plump grapes and place them on a baking sheet with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Then roast in oven.
While they are roasting, mix walnuts, lemon juice, salt, and pepper together.
After these grapes come out of the oven they will look like this and be oh so delicious!
Mix it all together and you have yourself an amazing salad!
