Yes, it is finally spring, and I can't resist putting everything I love about this season on one plate! The warm vinaigrette is sparked with tart, sweet flavors and the colors literally burst off the dish. This is one for a special spring day!



Preheat oven to 400° F.

Place the asparagus spears in a small baking pan. Place the halibut on a separate baking pan. Brush both the asparagus and halibut with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast the asparagus for about 8 minutes, or until just crisp tender. Roast the halibut for 10 to 12 minutes or until just opaque through.

Divide the chèvre into 4 balls and press each into a flat round. Press an edible flower or sprig of fresh herb on the surface of each chèvre medallion.

Toss the arugula or mixed greens with a little of the vinaigrette and divide between 4 salad plates. Arrange the asparagus, halibut and goat cheese on the plates.

Drizzle the entire plate with the warm vinaigrette, evenly distributing the hazelnuts, rhubarb and cherries.

Awesome salad

Made this salad last weekend and it was truly amazing! Used PCC mixed baby greens as my husband doesn't like Arugula very much. The Warm Rhubarb Vinaigrette was the best part, sweet, tart, tangy, all around very complex, and the Chevre cheese topped it all off beautifully. Will definitely make again!

Yummy with chicken too

Made this with grilled chicken, and it was a hit. A definite LIKE on the menu
