Shrimp, Goat Cheese and Blackberry Salad

Merry Christmas, everyone!!!  For recipe #30, I went light, refreshing, easy, and really tasty.  I know all of you have been eating their hearts out with family and friends on this joyous day.  And that is the way it should be!  One of the best parts of Christmas, to be sure.  At least its one of the aspects of the holiday I most look forward to.  Pumpkin piegingerbread…stuffing…Christmas cookies…sweet potatoes…oh my gosh, all delectable.

However, I imagine you might be in search of some lighter fare now that the whirlwind of delicious seasonal foods has been consumed.  In which case, I have just the ticket.

This recipe is a super cinch to make.  In fact, it doesn’t really require an official recipe type-up.  You can just toss it all together however it suits your fancy.  Enjoy!

Ingredients

Salad greens (I like arugula and spinach)

Shrimp (cooked/grilled)

Goat cheese (as much as you like)

A handful of blackberries

Pine nuts (you can roast these for 7-10 minutes in the oven if you wish, or just use them straight up).

Sesame seeds

And to top it all off, I recommend balsamic dressing for this salad.  But you can of course use whatever type your heart desires.
