Baby Greens Salad with Strawberries & Goats Cheese

This salad is perfect as a light meal, side dish or starter course while entertaining this summer. Using baby leafy greens increases (or boosts) the phytonutrient and fibre content of this recipe. Strawberries bring antioxidants and a subtle (or playful) fruitiness while the lemon vinaigrette keeps everything fresh and light.
