Herb, Grape, and Goat Cheese Salad

Herb, Grape, and Goat Cheese Salad
4oz goat cheese (the log kind, not crumbles)
About 1/4 cup finely chopped nuts (walnut, pistachio, whatever. Salty are best)
About a cup of red grapes, halved
Bag of spring mix salad
1/2 cup white wine vinegar (or red wine vinegar or a mix of rice vinegar and white wine. Be creative.)
About a tbsp honey
1/2 tsp salt
fresh pepper to taste
1/2 cup oil
chopped basil (about a tbsp)
chopped chives (about a tbsp)
Small bit of chopped mint, if you've got it

Break the cheese into small bite-sized pieces (about 12-14). Roll each into a ball in your palm, then roll in the nuts to coat evenly. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Make dressing by whisking together the second half of the ingredients (vinegar through herbs).

Place greens in large salad bowl, toss with about 1/4 cup dressing (you'll have a lot left over). Top with grapes and cheese balls.
Serves 4.
