hot salad

This is one of my go-to, favorite weeknight meals. It is so simple yet so fabulous! The best part of this salad {besides the easy clean-up!} is the way the hot vegetables melt the goat cheese and avocado to create the most creamy, delicious salad. There are so many possibilities for a variation to this salad – use different kinds of peppers or even switch out the yellow onion for a red onion. It’s a healthy meal for any night of the week!!

Hot Salad
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 green pepper, thinly sliced
1 avocado, peeled and sliced into chunks
1 bag {5 ounces} spring mix
3-4 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
Dressing to garnish salad {I used this Green Goddess dressing, but any vinaigrette will work!}
Olive Oil
Salt and pepper

Heat a few tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat in a medium-sized skillet. Sauté onion and pepper until soft and beginning to brown, about 10 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, assemble the rest of the salad: place lettuce, avocado and goat cheese in a large salad bowl. Once the onion and pepper are finished cooking, spoon the mixture over the salad. Toss with your dressing and serve.
