We loved this salad and I am going to be using this dressing for many other salads this summer. I read the reviews where the goat cheese melted so first I chilled the rounds very well and made sure that the broiler was blazing before I grilled them. They still melted down quite a bit but like the others I didn't mind one - the taste more than made up for any lack in presentaion. Thanks for sharing! made for the Bistro Babes - ZWT 8

The taste of this salad was phenomenal! The sherry vinegar and honey is a great combination, with the sour and sweet flavors perfectly balanced. I used baby spinach for my greens, and the match was perfect. I had a bit of trouble with the cheese- it actually started to melt instead of getting golden brown on top. Next time I will make sure the broiler is screaming hot before I put the cheese in, hopefully that will solve the problem. In this case, I just took the half melted cheese and distributed over the salad, and it tasted wonderful. I plan to make this again very soon! Thanks for posting!
