For the Salad:

  • 8 ounces fresh strawberries, halved
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 large avocado, sliced
  • 4 ounces fresh goat cheese, crumbled
  • 4 cups mixed salad greens
  • 5-6 mint leaves, julienned

For the Walnuts

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg

For the Vinaigrette

  • 2 tablespoons raspberry balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Make the vinaigrette: In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, olive oil and salt. Set aside.
  2. Make the Walnuts: Heat a skillet over medium heat. Melt butter. Whisk in sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Continue to whisk until mixture melts down into a syrup. Add walnuts and cook for 2-3 minutes, until toasted, stirring frequently to avoid the walnuts sticking together. Remove them to piece of parchment paper and let cool.
  3. Assemble the salad: In a large bowl, toss the ingredients for the salad together. Pour the vinaigrette over the salad and top with cooled candied walnuts.
