Baked Goat Cheese Salad

I know, I know, it's been a little while. But vacation really takes it out of you! (more on that later) Until I get around to posting vacation photos, here's a little something.Goat Cheese. One of my personal favorites. The only person I know who doesn't love goat cheese is my grandma. Her explanation is that it tastes like goat to her. I wonder how she knows what goat tastes like... We sometimes even try to sneak it into her food to see if she'll even notice that there's goat cheese in it and without fail, she makes her best "I just ate something and it did not taste good" face. Go figure.So anyway, goat cheese. We bought an 8 oz package of the creamy, delicious stuff and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. Goat cheese salad! And with blueberries in season, they were the perfect complement. The salad I made had spinach, arugula, blueberries, apple, sliced almonds and baked goat cheese with a homemade blueberry dressing.I found a simple recipe for the goat cheese online...all it took was sautéing some garlic, adding panko and some butter and dipping goat cheese medallions in it so they were covered in crunchy bits. Then those went in the oven for about 10 minutes. I think the oven was set to 375 or something.The dressing consisted of blueberries (duh), red wine vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, and a spoonful of plum jam for sweetness. It almost looked a smoothie after I mixed it, but it tasted pretty darn good.After that, I just put the components together. Ta-da! Beautiful, delicious and probably fairly good for you.
