Summer is for salads!
Try this fresh, crisp salad topped with a creamy, cultured goat milk cheese and kefir dressing. Sprinkle poppy seeds just before serving for a colorful finish. If you cannot find favas, try edamame or simply double up on peas. Use Mâche or baby spinach if you cannot find pea shoots at your farmer’s market or grocery store produce aisle. The fava beans and peas as well as dressing can all be prepared up to a day ahead, making this a nice recipe for summer entertaining.

Here is a way to pump up your vegetable and probiotic intake: Pair your leafy greens with homemade Ranch dressing made with our probiotic-rich kefir. Originally calling for buttermilk, we’ve substituted our Plain Goat Milk Kefir in this Ranch dressing recipe and love the result. Use over fresh lettuce greens, as a dip for raw vegetables, or as a dressing for potato salad and coleslaw.

The number “8” is very lucky for the Chinese, so it’s not unusual to find a delicious dish with eight special ingredients on the table during Chinese New Year. Traditionally, eight ingredients like bamboo shoots, bean shoots and other “lucky” ingredients are stir-fried together to make something truly delicious.
You can choose any ingredients you love, but we like the crunch of the cucumbers, the slightly spicy radish wedges and the sweetness of the tomatoes when paired with the peanut and goat yogurt sauce. The egg ribbons add an Asian flavor to this salad, and the addition of fresh herbs give an added freshness with every bite. The carrots are also important since they are thought to bring luck.
Savory goodness, chock-full of super foods…this tuna salad parfait made with tangy, delicious plain goat yogurt is a lovely light meal and great way to get your daily dose of probiotics.

Food Network Chef Ming Tsai visited our farm, and created for us this delicious arugula salad with warmed California Crottin.
Any fine olive oil will work well in this salad – we love the extra citrus kick from “O Lime.” This salad comes together quickly, and will make a perfect first course.
