Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Mixed Greens with Goat Cheese & Dates
Mixed greens, dates, and goat cheese tossed with a simple dressing of olive oil, vinegar and soy sauce.
I keep wondering, how anything as simple as this mixed green salad with goat cheese and dates can be so delicious?
Have you ever thought of adding dates to a salad? I certainly hadn’t. And I LOVE dates.
I eat dates as a sweet snack and love them in yummy baked goods: banana date coconut muffins, old-fashioned date bars, banana date coconut cookies, crispy rice and date no bake cookie balls. I’ve also had them as simple appetizers – stuffed with a bit of Parmesan cheese or olive tapenade.
But this mixed green salad with goat cheese and dates was a total revelation. I’m hooked. Eating more greens is really easy when they’re this yummy!
