Adapted from Robin Jemal’s holiday recipe kosher cookbook Dare To Be Different ,
this dairy goat cheese salad with its citrusy dressing will be a major hit with your family and guests.
The toasted sliced almonds and Panko coated goat cheese adds a nice dose of topping crunch that, just for a moment brings back the good old days of CARVEL chocolate crunch…. BUT getting back to reality, lets all accept the fact that if we were born before 1980- the Carvel topping days are not on the menu anymore, and now we might have to add that daily dose of crunch with a salad that has a sidekick of sweet roasted butternut squash and toasted almonds, and a citrusy dressing to top it all off. Recipes like these make it fun to be a grownup!
