Top Review by K9 Owned

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
