Popcorn Chicken Salad + Goat Cheese +  Buttermilk Dressing

Lately, Sarah and I talk about goat cheese.  More digestible than cow cheese, goat cheese brings a rich flavor to meals that we each love.   Most recently, I made popcorn chicken, dipping fresh chicken and flouring it before pan frying in olive oil.  Served on a bed of lettuce with goat cheese and a garlicky buttermilk dressing, this creamy chicken salad was flavorful and satisfying.

Sarah recently made a trip to Humboldt County with her husband and sons to visit family.  While there, they made a quick stop at Cypress Grove Creamery to see the goat cheese ripening.   The creamery uses a mixture of goat milks for their cheeses from 5 different types of goats!  During their visit, Sarah and her family enjoyed sample of the chèvre.
