After this afternoon’s workout , I picked up Ben from the train station and came back home for a shower. Ben had a doctor’s appointment tonight, so I wrote this afternoon’s post while he was gone, hoping to eat dinner together. Once Ben came home it was after nine, so while he grilled the steak I had taken out for dinner, I opted for something a bit lighter since it was getting late.
When you look on the ingredient list of most dried fruits, the second ingredients is 9 times out of 10 sugar, but not with these!
This time the ingredient list was a healthy one, and the nutrition facts were fantastic too!
I combined many of my favorite flavors to create a Cranberry, Pecan, and Goat Cheese Salad!
Mixed greens (this mix was romaine, endive, and ridicchio) was topped with shredded carrots, 1/3 cup of dried cranberries, 1/4 cup of chopped, lightly toasted pecans, and about 1 oz. of goat cheese. The salad was then lightly dressed with 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil, 1/2 tablespoon of red wine vinegar, a pinch of Kosher salt, and some freshly ground pepper.
