Ingredients
  

Shallot-Honey Vinaigrette:

  • Click the link above for the recipe.

Goat Cheese Croquettes:

  • 1 pound plain goat cheese chevre log
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup panko crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Olive oil for frying

Salad:

  • 1 pound mixed garden lettuces
  • 1 quart fresh strawberries cleaned, capped and sliced
  • 1 large avocado sliced

Instructions
 

  • To make the vinaigrette, place shallots, honey, vinegar, salt and pepper in a blender jar; pulse until smooth. Slowly drizzle in the olive and canola oils. Vinaigrette will become a smooth thick emulsion.
  • To make the croquettes, cut goat cheese log into 16 pieces. Form each into a disc shape. Place flour into one bowl, and egg beaten with a little water into another bowl. In a third bowl, mix panko with salt, pepper and fresh thyme leaves.
  • Dust each disc in flour, then dip into egg, then dip into seasoned panko, pressing the crumbs lightly onto the goat cheese. Use the “wet hand-dry hand” technique. Use one hand to dip into flour, egg, and place in the bowl of panko—use the other hand to press the panko and remove. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and coat bottom with olive oil. Cook goat cheese discs until brown (about 3 minutes) and turn over to brown on the other side.
  • To assemble the salad, start with a base of garden lettuces. Arrange sliced strawberries and sliced avocados over the greens. Place warm goat cheese croquettes on top. Drizzle with vinaigrette and serve.
