Mixed Greens with Strawberries, Goat Cheese, and Marcona Almonds

Mixed Greens with Strawberries, Goat Cheese, and Marcona Almonds

I made the mistake recently of trying Marcona almonds. Bad idea! They are the most amazing nut I’ve ever eaten. I love the flavor and saltiness and crave them often. The problem is, they aren’t that great for you and they are very expensive. I only buy little containers at a time and try to savor them slowly. I had a busy morning running around trying to make it to my son’s geography bee this morning and an appointment right after, so by the time I got home for lunch, I was starving. Thankfully, I had some balsamic vinaigrette in the refrigerator, along with some fresh strawberries, goat cheese crumbles, mixed greens, and Marcona almonds. I threw them together and made this beautiful and tasty salad that seriously took minutes to make. The combination of flavors and textures was wonderful and this salad tasted amazing. I’ll be making this one again tomorrow – yum!

  1. Marcona almonds are great. And this salad is such a great way to feature them! I’m starting to crave big salads again for dinner — a sure sign that spring is on the horizon!

  2. What a perfect salad! I think I might have to jump on the marcona bandwagon…
