Strawberry and Goat Cheese Salad

Sometimes I wonder, are there still good people in this world?  Well last night, my question was answered.  First off, I had a “girl’s night” dinner at The Cheesecake Factory.  It was a much needed girl time that we BOTH needed.  I’d left straight from work, made a stop at the gas station, and headed straight to the restaurant.  We had a great time catching up on…life!
When the check came, I searched my tiny purse for my card.  It was no where to be found.  I checked all of my pockets and still nothing…zilch.  Thankfully, I had some cash in my purse which is rare.  So I assumed my card was laying in my car seat or something.  Yea…nope…not there either.  So one the way home (30 minutes away) I gave the gas station I’d stopped at earlier a call to see if anyone had turned in a card.  Another no.  And of course I thought “Great, I’m going to have to cancel my card and it’s going to be a huge pain in my ass to replace.”
Then I decided to call the restaurant just to make sure it wasn’t in the booth or something.  I was greeted by a nice woman and she put me on hold for 10 minutes to go look for my card.  The manager then picked up the phone and asked me what my name was.  I told him and then he burst out laughing.  Umm k, kind of starting to freak out here, what’s up?
He said “We have your card and you will NEVER guess where a customer found it!”…awkward silence from my end, but I realized he was waiting for me to respond, so I asked “Where?”  He replied “IN THE TOILET!!!”
So, an awesome, random customer saw my card in the bottom of a public toilet, reached her hand into the nursty water to save my precious debit card!  I mean, had she left it there and just decided to flush it to toilet heaven I would’ve completely understood.  I asked the manager if the customer left her name so at least I could thank her, but she didn’t.  So there are still people out there who will sacrifice their hand to a public toilet to retrieve and turn in your card!
Strawberry and Goat Cheese Salad

Here is the salad I prepared for us to eat for lunch.  To follow the fodmaps diet, I mixed everything together minus the goat cheese.  Then prepared a bowl for my sister and then added the cheese.  She thought the salad was still awesome and refreshing without the cheese. 
Ok, this is one of my favorite salads!  This salad is super healthy and combining the strawberries, lemon juice, and goat cheese creates its own dressing.  Actually, most salads I use a fresh squeeze of lemon juice instead of dressing because it really cuts down on the calories. And it didn’t hurt that the strawberries were from the farmers market!
Ingredients
Salad
Fresh Strawberries, sliced
Fresh squeeze of lemon juice
Dash of extra virgin olive oil
