What's for dinner: East Atlanta Village farmer's Market

Sorry I missed you guys yesterday! But don't fear... your what's for dinner post is here! :-)

Most of you are familiar with the East Atlanta Village Farmer's Market that goes on Thursday evenings over on Flat Shoals... well I finally made it out to explore the local goodies, I even got a pretty delicious dinner out of my finds. Check it out....

I love cheese!! I bought the most delish Chile Goat cheese from this vendor

Yum! I bought a big bag of fresh Arugula too...

Last but not least.... here is what I made for dinner with the Arugula and Chile Goat Cheese that I purchased at the market. I added some spinach, dried cranberries, candied walnuts, a few sliced onions (I would have preferred red onions, but I didn't have any at home... use what you have!) and a delicious homemade balsamic vinaigrette (recipe listed below).

Yummy Fall salad!

Balsamic Vinaigrette


¾ cup olive oil
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
½ shallot diced
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
a few pinches Michelle’s Essence


  • Whisk vinegar and mustard in a small bowl.
  • Add in diced shallot and a pinch on Michelle's Essence
  • Whisk oil in at a slow steady stream until fully incorporated
  • Taste and and adjust seasoning if necessary.
  • Enjoy over your salad or even use as a marinade!
(Printable recipe here.)
