The sweetness of the fruit, crispness of the lettuce and the slight acidic bite from the goat cheese create a flavorful salad.
Wash the fruit, then cut in half and remove the pits. Brush cut side with olive oil. Over medium heat, grill or broil until nicely browned on both sides. Set aside to cool. Then slice each half in 4 pieces. Toss the lettuce in a medium-sized bowl with half the vinaigrette. Divide between plates. Arrange goat cheese and fruit on the center of each bed of greens. Drizzle fruit and cheese with remaining vinaigrette and serve.
