Honey Goat Cheese Dressing

Taste the wonderful flavors of fall in this beautiful salad with apples, craisins, pecans, honey and creamy goat cheese tossed with mixed baby greens. I love the combination of the goat cheese paired with the sweet taste of honey and fruit. This is great as a side salad or a light lunch.

I was surprised to learn that goat cheese is 30% lower in fat and calories than most cow’s milk and it’s tolerable for those who cannot digest cow’s milk.
