This Warm Spinach and Goat Cheese Salad is a delightful combination of flavors and textures that will leave you feeling satisfied. The inspiration for this recipe came from a visit to a charming bistro in the heart of Paris. The warm, tangy goat cheese paired with the fresh spinach and crunchy walnuts created an unforgettable dining experience.

Ever since that trip, I've been recreating this salad at home for family and friends. It's always a hit, whether served as a light lunch or as a side dish during dinner parties. The best part is that it's incredibly easy to make, requiring just a few simple ingredients and minimal preparation time.

Not only is this salad delicious, but it's also packed with nutrients. Spinach is rich in vitamins and minerals, while goat cheese provides a good source of protein and calcium. Walnuts add a satisfying crunch and are loaded with healthy fats, making this salad a well-rounded and nutritious choice.


  • 8 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinaigrette
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Wash and dry the baby spinach, then place it in a large salad bowl.
  2. In a small skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped walnuts and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they are lightly toasted and fragrant.
  3. Add the toasted walnuts to the spinach, along with the crumbled goat cheese and dried cranberries.
  4. Drizzle the balsamic vinaigrette over the salad and toss gently to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Serve the salad immediately while the walnuts are still warm.
