Prep time: 15 min.

Cook time: 1 hour 10 min. 

Serves: 2-4


  • ½ lb. Pineland Farms Beef Stir Fry Strips
  • 5 oz. package of spring mix
  • 1 package Fresh Cut Organic Root Vegetable Roasting Mix (or your own mix of chopped root vegetables)
  • 1 package Organic Poultry Mix Herbs (fresh rosemary, sage, thyme)
  • 2 oz. Vermont Creamery goat cheese
  • ¼ c walnuts
