"This is a wonderful way to add elegance and flavor to spinach. The warm goat cheese melts in your mouth and nicely accents the balsamic vinegar." — RADIOGIRL

baby spinach, rinsed and dried
plain bread crumbs
goat cheese, sliced
wow, baked goat's cheese without baking, I love it!! The salad can always be revamped, but the spinach or mesclun mix seems to pair really well with the goats cheese. I sprinkle almonds and sometimes add some strawberries, anything goes, but the goats cheese is what makes this such a hit.
This is a good recipe that impresses guests without much effort. I loved the texture and delicate flavor of the warm goat cheese encrusted with the garlic and breadcrumb mixture, but thought the spinach needed a little something extra. Next time I will try adding a good amount of freshly shredded carrot and/or diced red or yellow pepper to add color and variety. I would definately make this again; it's very quick and easy.
I LOVE Goat Cheese Salads, and this one just didn't do it for me. I'll try it again sometime with a different Goat Cheese (I'm sure that the one you pick makes or breaks this salad). I also had trouble coating the cheese with bread crumbs the way I wanted to, but that was probably just user error.
this was a great dish I served it to my girlfriend and she thought it was from a rest.
This was very good and easy! I did put the breaded cheese in the oven for a few minutes to crisp it a little more. Also put red onions and carrots on the salad. Thanks for the recipe!
Very nice salad. It was rather difficult "baking" the goat cheese. I was impatient and put it all in the pan, making it very challenging to flip them. So do only a few at a time, like the directions say. I used panko for the bread crumbs. I also made the oil and vinegar into a dressing, whisking in 1/2 tsp. dijon mustard and 1/2 tsp. mayo (as emulsifiers) and adding a pinch of salt and pepper. Some real bacon bits were a good addition too.
I thought the 'baked' goat cheese was delicious...I used panko 'italian style' bread crumbs..I thought the cool greens with the warm cheese was good but next time I might try sauteed spinach with sun-dried tomatoes ...Thanks for a great recipe
