Spinach Salad with Goat Cheese and Walnuts — Meatless Monday

Related To:

Come lunchtime, when all else fails you can nearly always count on a simple salad to save your midday meal. All it takes to pull off a winning recipe is bunch of fresh greens and a light dressing; anything beyond that is a bonus, but it surely helps to bulk up a salad with seasonal produce, hearty protein, and cheese for added sustenance and decadence. Make Rachael's five-minute green salad with strawberries for a healthy recipe in a hurry; dig into Food Network Kitchen's classic Greek Salad, packed with Kalamata olives, crumbled feta cheese and juicy cherry tomatoes; or try a top-rated spinach salad.

In just 15 quick minutes, Food Network Kitchen turns out a Spinach Salad with Goat Cheese and Walnuts (pictured above) that's both good for you and deliciously satisfying. The star of this recipe is the flavor-packed vinaigrette, whisked together with sweet shallots and tangy Dijon mustard. Dress the greens with this simple mixture, and add crunchy walnuts and creamy goat cheese for texture and taste.

Meatless Monday, an international movement, encourages people everywhere to cut meat one day a week for personal and planetary health. Browse more Meatless Monday recipes.
