Seasonal Chopped Salad with Herbed Goat Cheese Dressing

Seasonal Chopped Salad Recipe

Farmers markets and grocery stores are full of vibrant produce this time of year. You can find many unique varieties of old favorites. Just today I saw “Apple-cots” which I am guessing is a hybrid of an apple and apricot. I couldn’t resist picking up purple bell peppers. They were something I have never seen before, so I thought they would be perfect for today’s salad recipe. I am going to serve this creamy herbed goat cheese dressed salad tonight alongside some grilled sausages. This seasonal chopped salad has some great springtime favorites in addition to the purple peppers; crunchy radishes, cool cucumbers and tender fingerling potatoes. My favorite part is the creamy herbed goat cheese dressing with fresh lemon and dill.
