Strawberry, Blueberry, Goat Cheese Mache Rosette Salad with Bison

Delicious, light yet lean & mean – always a winning combo.

Bison seasoned with garlic, paprika and cayenne pepper.  Cooked in a skillet. Since it is so lean, I used a small amount of spray olive oil so it would not stick.

Low-carb Tip: Instead of using croutons on your salad, use air popped popcorn!  It is similar nutritional benefits to brown rice and will actually help you feel full. Two brands to consider using are Skinny Pop and Fit Pop.

Valentine’s Day Salad

What better way to get into a romantic mood than by having a delicious meal with your partner? Spice up your day with your significant other with our special Valentine’s day salad. We all know those flowers you get will wilt eventually, and you can’t even do much with them. So, why not do something different? Get some edible flora and use them in one of our day-to-day salad recipes!

 

Ingredients and Preparation

 

The first thing you’ll need is arugula. It has a slightly bitter taste and is also known as Italian cress and salad rocket. It’s a great vegetable because it’s packed with so many nutrients and antioxidants. This will surely add a kick to your meal.

 

Next, you will need some edible flowers. Some popular ones are hibiscus, lilacs, carnations, and roses. Every flower has its own unique flavor, so choose something that satisfies you and your partner’s palette. Besides this, keep in mind that not all flowers are edible and some are actually poisonous. Do enough research and source them properly, so you know which ones are safe to eat and won’t end up making anyone sick.

 

Then, you will need strawberries. These juicy little red fruits are packed with sweetness and vitamins, making it a nice ingredient to complement the rest of the dish. You can also add it to other recipes, like for a spinach or avocado salad.

 

The next ingredient is sliced almonds. These are to add a bit of crunch and serve as healthy toppings for the dish.

 

Last but certainly not least, you will need some goat cheese. Its creaminess and tanginess are sure to amplify the flavor of the other ingredients.

 

Serving

 

Top off the salad with your choice of vinaigrette, mix everything, and enjoy!

 

The flowers will be a pleasant and flavorful surprise to your partner. You can even do this to celebrate other holidays like Mother’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, or Thanksgiving. If you liked this recipe, let us know so we can make other Valentine’s day salad recipes for you to try out.
