I first had a similar salad at Annie Gunn's in St. Louis and really liked it (licked my plate clean), but felt something was missing from it. I just figured it out. . .I think the dressing should have a touch of sweetness! That being said, here is my retake on the recipe. If you aren't a fan of goat cheese, feel free to sub it out with Boursin or feta. Also sometimes they serve this salad with strawberries instead of blackberries, but I think the blackberries always look prettier!
