Goats Cheese Salad with a Giant Crouton

This is a regular in our house as we pretend its healthy. Its not. It is simply the gathering of lots of yummy items and combining them to make a rich and tasty dish.



Rocket or other salad leaves
Juice of 1/2 a Lemon
About 4 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 good squidge of Honey
Disc of goats cheese
Thinly sliced Pear (1 should be enough for 2 servings)
Cherry Tomatoes


Put the goats cheese discs on square pieces of baking parchment and a baking tray and put in the oven for about 7-10 minutes at 180 degrees for a fan assisted oven.

Whilst that is cooking, toast your bread. In a bowl add lemon juice, honey, olive oil and salt and pepper. Whisk together really well so it is nicely emulsified. If you’ve got whole walnuts break them up a bit to edible bite-size pieces. Cut your tomatoes in half and add the walnuts, salad leaves, tomatoes and sliced pear to a bowl.

Butter the toast and cut it into a circle shape to sit under the goats cheese.

Remove the goats cheese from the oven. Don’t worry if some of it is leaking out, its going to do that anyway on the plate. Put it on top of the crouton. Then add the lemon and honey dressing to the salad and toss it well. Add the salad items around the goats cheese. Drizzle some olive oil and grind some pepper on top of the goats cheese and there you have it!

I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Its another really simple mid-week dinner.
