You want to know what I love? I love a recipe that requires practically no effort on your part and comes out looking and tasting like something you’d get in a fancy schmancy restaurant. Hello, Smoked Trout Salad with Goat Cheese Croutes from Fine Cooking.
I love a salad for dinner, especially on a Friday night. It gets me ready for the usual over-eating I do on a weekend. The trick is finding a salad that leaves me feeling virtuous and hubby not staring at an empty plate five minutes later with his stomach still growling. This salad is perfect. My store didn’t have any smoked trout, but they did have some smoked mackerel. So, it was a wonderful, fatty fish that gave that full, satisfied feel. Then you have the creamy, tangy goat cheese, and the crisp bread. It was truly delightful. If you are wondering why my goat cheese has red flecks in it…the only goat cheese they had was rolled in dried cranberries. While I think I would have preferred the plain goat cheese, this was still quite good!
Seriously make this. Follow the link above and make this.
