Warm Spinach Salad with Spring Vegetable Sauté & Goat Cheese Fondue

Louis Moskow from 315 Restaurant & Wine Bar leading the Market Fresh Cooking class on June 7, 2016

At this week’s Tuesday Market Summer Kick-Off event, Chef Louis Moskow from 315 Restaurant & Wine Bar led Market Fresh Cooking. This is a special summer/fall Institute program which helps educate Santa Feans on new ways to use fresh, local market produce while giving exposure to our amazing chefs.

After Chef Moskow shopped the Market to purchase items that are in season, guests could follow along as he demonstrated how to create a simple and tasty salad using fresh spinach, radishes, spring vegetables, and a goat cheese fondue.

The Recipe


  • 2 oz Butter or Olive Oil
  • 1 oz Green Garlic (Chopped)
  • 1 bunch Spring Onions (diced)
  • 1 bunch Baby Turnips
  • 1 bunch Baby Carrots
  • 1 cup Peas
  • Spinach
  • Radishes

Cheese Fondue Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • 1 Shallot (minced)
  • 1 cup Cream
  • 6 oz Goat Cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Herbs (chopped)
