The following recipe is prepared by an Executive Chef at Tender Greens. A chain of restaurants throughout California.
So here is what you will need to do in your home to prepare Watermelon Goat Cheese Salad.
Also we will use only half the shallot, minced. That will go into the vinaigrette.
Mince the one-half of shallot and place into a small jar. Dice 5 chives and spoon into the small jar. Slice into small stripes 5 basil leaves and place them into the small jar. Set aside.
I bought orange clove honey. It has a full bodied flavor for sweeten things. Honey is natural and a good alternative to sugar. Also honey is full of digestive enzymes. Therefore never heat the honey in a microwave or on the stove top. Boil some water in a small pan, than remove from stove. Leaving the honey in the container, place it down into the hot water for 2 minutes or until runny. This will not kill the enzymes that are a benefit to your tummy.
Next pour in the honey and vinegar. Place the lid tightly on the jar and give it a swift shake. Open the jar and pour in the salt and pepper and place the lid on again and shake.
Next pour slowly the oil and return the lid back onto the jar and give it a 30 to 40 second shack to mix things up.
Finish with drizzled vinaigrette around salad.
We also had a meat selection of baked breast of chicken (bone in and skinless).
Enjoy this nutritious and healthy for your heart salad while watermelon is in season. As for the goat cheese, it is a very healthy choice of cheese.
