I love salads. I could eat them every day and honestly, do most days. The only person that I can think of that loves salads more than me is my daughter Alex. This summer, I had the pleasure of working with Alex. It came as quite a surprise to both of us but we really enjoyed working together. Of course, one of the highlights of our work day was always lunch. It’s true the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, Alex is a foodie just like me.
We were thrilled when Carbonell Olive Oil sent us three of their olive oils and couldn’t wait to come up with a new salad creation. When thinking about what to make, we thought about our favorite salad toppings. I love goat cheese and could eat it on almost everything and one of Alex’s favorite toppings is craisins. That was all the inspiration we needed.
We immediately fell in love with the Daringly Expressive Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It’s rich taste and smooth flavor was perfect for our Goat Cheese, Craisin and Walnut Salad. This is a salad that we turned to time and time again when we took a break from work to break bread together.
It was a summer that I will never forget and I am so thankful to have the opportunity to work with my daughter and share moments of preparing and enjoying salads like this.
