Spinach Salad, Microgreens, Goat Cheese & Quick Honey Mustard Dressing

Goat Cheese Salad: a real vegetarian classic and Dutch favorite. This dish is present on most menu’s of Dutch restaurants, sauna’s and lunch rooms. To give this dish an extra health-boost, I added Microgreens & Fermented Red Cabbage. Don’t have those ingredients in-house? You can also add sprouts, apple or pickles!
