My Macho Salad

There is this restaurant with a salad called the "Macho Salad with Roasted Chicken, Avocado, Chopped Almonds and Goat Cheese." I love this salad. The different textures and flavors and the combinations of the sweet and salty, crunchy and creamy,  makes it so addicting. To recreate a similarly addicting salad, let your tongue lead you on this adventure. Here is My Macho Salad.

Hint: Roll little goat cheese clumps in slightly crumbled toasted pecans to keep the nuts from going  down to the bottom of the bowl! Great trick I learned from my mother-in-law.

  1. This was inspiration for my kitchen stocking grocery trip. Modified a little w/grapes, and no chopped dates :) Miss you - we need a catch-up soon!

  2. YAY!!!! Sounds delicious! With the grapes and maybe even chopped Granny Smith, you could do blue cheese rolled in crumbled toasted walnuts!!! I better stop before I ruin my keyboard with drool.... Miss you too!
