19 Recipes that you will love for salads with goat cheese

Adding goat cheese to your salad is like adding the perfect ingredient you didn’t realize a recipe was missing until you tried it. Enjoy one of our 19 Amazing Salad With Goat Cheese Recipes and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

How Does Goat Cheese Taste?

I’ve always been a huge fan of cheese, all cheese. However, when we started raising dairy goats, goat cheese quickly moved to the top of the list.

Goat cheese is commonly described as having a mild, earthy, buttery but tart flavor. The flavors will deepen as the cheese ripens making the tartness sharper and earthiness more pronounced. Goat cheese is often sold covered in herbs or peppers for an added layer of flavors.

My personal opinion, goat cheese is for the serious cheese lover, such as myself, who wants to actually taste the cheese in their food, not just the creamy texture of cheese.

In addition to having salad with goat cheese, it pairs well with everything from appetizers to Pizzas, and desserts.

As a matter of fact, we have over 50 taste bud pleasing recipes with goat cheese for you to add to your menu.

Why is Goat Cheese Healthy?

Although goat cheese is made using the same process as cheese made from cows milk, it has a different nutritional content.

Goat cheese is a good source of vitamin B3, protein, selenium, magnesium, healthy fats, calcium, and more.

According to medical professionals, goat cheese and milk, is easier to digest than dairy from cows and better for the digestive system.

Handcrafted Wood Salad Bowls

One of my fond memories as a child is having these wood salad bowls we used to eat out of.

However, they fail in comparison to these handcrafted bowls our good friend and fellow homesteader, Derek Smiley, makes.

I can’t talk about salads without sharing where you can buy the most exquisite salad bowls around.

Derek Smiley, custom makes bowls and a variety of other works that are truly a work of art.

He makes his bowls out of wood such as Cherry, Walnut, Maple, Black Limba, and Padauk.

What better way to present your salad with goat cheese than in a custom made bowl with this kind of beauty.

You can find beautiful bowls like this and many more on his Etsy store, Derek Smiley Woodworks.

Farm To Table

Do you feel the desire to get closer to your food source and want to be more self-sufficient? You’re not alone.

Not only did we want to start gardening and grow our own fruits, vegetables, and herbs, but we wanted to raise our own dairy as well.

Knowing we didn’t have enough land to raise dairy cows, we started raising the smallest breed of dairy goats, the Nigerian Dwarf Goats.

Nigerian Dwarf Goats are the ideal dairy animal for people who don’t have a lot of land or for those that don’t have the ability to handle large livestock.

Not to mention, their dairy is superb and makes wonderful goat cheese!

If you would like to learn more about raising goats, you can check out our book, The Beginners Guide To Raising Goats, you can message me in the comments or send an email.

Always happy to help anyone who wants to raise goats!
