Frisée Salad with Cherries & Goat Cheese

This is a light salad full of flavor thanks to delicious cherries!  The original recipe calls for blue cheese, which you are more than welcome to use.  But I’m not a big blue cheese fan (unless it’s with buffalo wings!) so I used goat cheese as a substitute.  Also, because I didn’t have any raspberry vinegar in the house, I used pomegranate champagne vinegar.

Because of how light his salad is, I would make this as a side for dinner.  (In fact, I made this to compliment the Seared Tilapia with Cherry Salsa.  Horray, cherries!)  But if you do want to make this a meal, have it for lunch and compliment it with a whole grain roll or soup.
