"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."

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
