I'm Back!

I did get back a week ago, but playing catch-up with my house and kids has made it to much to blog. I am now ready to get back in the swing of things.
First off, I had the most AMAZING time in Europe. I have so much to tell and share with ya'll but I am not ready just yet ( I am still waiting on pics). So I wanted to share something I have made since I have been home.

I became a bit obsessed with Chevre Salads while in France. Every restaurant had their own version of one, and I got one at each place! The one thing they all have is Chevre cheese aka Goat Cheese. Most of the salads come with toast topped with warm goat cheese, but there was one that put the goat cheese in a crepe! All were amazing so I decided to put together one that had my favorite parts of each one.
First a base of leafy greens
Sliced Beets
Chopped marinated artichoke hearts
Diced tomatoes
Shredded carrots marinated in some creamy italian dressing
Chopped pecans/walnuts
Hard Boiled Eggs
Prosciutto ( which I had and totally forgot to put in)

Then the Goat Cheese Toast of course
Serve with your favorite Italian dressing

The family LOVED it! Yes even my little ones downed the goat cheese toasts. The only part they didn't love was the beets ( but that was mostly for me anyway!)
I sure hope you try this, and go crazy add whatever you like, just make sure you top it with goat cheese toast!

* here are some other things that were in the salads
- pears

Also a late Happy Mother's Day!
I had a wonderful day filled with Tons of great food made by people I love. What a way to spend a day
