    mmmmm. i've always wanted to make my own warm goat cheese salad. this recipe is SO EASY and it came out delicious and elegant. the dressing is simple and yet complements the cheese so well in this dish. we served it over fresh baby arugula and have had it as our 1st course for several meals. i haven't tried it with olives yet... but it's great, yummy, and quick for entertaining! thank you for the recipe.

    OMG, this is one of the most fabulous salads I've ever tasted. I love goat cheese souffle, but never had goat cheese in salads and really did not know what to expect. But, so glad I made this recipe. I halved the dressing and used one log of goat cheese. Instead of cutting into 4 pieces, I cut the log into 5 pieces and I think this works out better when gently frying. If they are too big it's harder to brown the pieces. Very important not to over brown them or it will start to fall apart. Really takes no more than a minute per side. The dressing by itself is very good but it becomes maginificent when drizzled over the warm and melting goat cheese. The taste of the dressing really compliments the salad perfectly. This is a show stopper and great for dinner parties. Thank you Vicki for posting this yummy recipe!
