Honey & Goat Cheese Salad Dressing (and 7 things about me)
Did you know that goat cheese has 30% less fat than sour cream? While most cows milk cheeses have about 100 calories and 10 grams of fat per ounce, goat cheese only has 80 calories and 6 grams of fat.
Blend ingredients and serve over a salad (or even as a veggie or fruit dip!).
I had this salad for dinner last night and have it packed again for lunch today. The sweetness of fruit with the tang of the dressing compliment each other well. Try apples, strawberries, grapes, or craisin/raisins as your fruit with a spring mix lettuce blend. The crunch of an almond or pecan would add more texture as well. Another option is to add beets, they are heavenly with goat cheese.
* I’m orginally from Fairfield, Connecticut
* I’ve been on Fox News several times to talk politics etc. (mainly through the 2008 election) and ultimately decided that was not the direction I wanted to take my career in. Television (and politics) is a tough business, emotionally and physically, little pay, long hours, and high stress.
* I listen to all kinds of music but tend to lean towards hard rock, emo, and punk. (Hard to imagine when you see me, I don’t really fit that stereo type)
*I cry at the drop of a hat. I cried last night during “Chopped” on the food network. I cry during HGTV’s House Hunters. I’m ridiculous.
*I love Jameson Irish Whiskey on the rocks (but can’t hold my alcohol like I used too).
*I have a problem with eating too much candy, mainly gummy candy (Haribo gummy bears and Swedish Fish).
