Mushroom, Apple and Goat Cheese Salad with Honey-Balsamic Dressing

Who has an healthy and skinny Christmas planned? hum…nobody, I guess. If there’s one moment during the year when you’re “allowed” let go a little, it’s definitively the holidays. So I though a good salad loaded with healthy ingredients couldn’t hurt our December festive-and-not-particularly-healthy diet. Especially since the blog will be featuring Snickers Brownies on Friday (you’d better stay tuned, ¬†they’re pretty good). Oh yeah.

Mushroom, Apple and Goat Cheese Salad with Honey-Balsamic Dressing

This Mushroom, Apple and Goat Cheese Salad¬†comes together in minutes and is perfect for a quick lunch. If you buy sliced mushrooms, there’s hardly no prep to do, besides slicing the apple and making the vinaigrette. The combination of mushrooms, apples, goat cheese and arugula is very tasty. But the best part is probably the honey-balsamic vinaigrette, with a touch of shallot. I love this dressing! Keep this recipe in mind, you can use it in many different salads and the result will always be delicious.

  1. Where does the Dijon mustard come into play? You listed it in the ingredients but forgot to mention where you put it into the recipe!
