Blackberry Goat Cheese Salad

After a lovely holiday weekend celebrating and hanging out with family, I’m ready for some lighter food.  It was delicious weekend, but I totally stuffed myself.  If you too are coming off a celebratory weekend, let me suggest this Blackberry Goat Cheese Salad.  This hardly qualifies as a recipe, but it’s a super delicious combination and perfect for the summer when blackberries are reaching their peak perfection.  Don’t have blackberries?  This would be equally awesome with strawberries or blueberries or peaches!  It’s definitely the perfect end to a perfect weekend with family.
