22 Apr 2011 Spinach Salad with Plums and Goat Cheese

Adapted from Whole Foods Market. Spinach salad with plums and goat cheese. Downloaded from the web on April 21, 2001.

My Comment: Well, if the weather around here won’t cooperate and warm up, we can still have salad suppers!  This spinach salad from Whole Foods recipe collection calls for Humboldt Fog goat cheese – which I love, but which is very expensive. Substitute any goat cheese that will crumble. Also, we used a variety of plums which made for a colorful addition to the greens.
