Berries and goat cheese were ALWAYS meant to be together. This fresh, easy berry and goat cheese salad is a perfect lunch or light dinner. It takes me back to the days were I would PILE nuts and cheese and fruit in my salad without realizing how high salad-calories could climb. HA! This one still checks all of the boxes, but keeps the macros on point.
