Goat Cheese Salad

The Goat Cheese Salad can be a fresh appetizer or a light meal. With its bright colors it is a perfect dish for your Easter lunch table. Lamb’s lettuce is tender and sweet. Cherry tomatoes give freshness. Goat cheese and sun-dried tomatoes are tasty. Finally, the balsamic dressing perfectly matches the flavours.

Goat Cheese Salad

Ingredients for 6:
100 gr of lamb’s lettuce, washed
100 gr of mixed tender leaf salad, washed
20 cherry tomatoes, washed and halved
200 gr of sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil, drained
200 gr of fresh goat cheese, cut in slices of around 1,5  cm

Ingredients for the balsamic dressing:
8 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp of balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp of honey, I used mint honey
a pinch of salt
a pinch of freshly ground black pepper

How to prepare:
First prepare the dressing. In a small bowl put all the ingredients for the dressing and whisk them with a fork until you have a homogeneous sauce. Taste and if necessary adjust salt and pepper.

Put the salads in a bowl and pour the balsamic dressing into it. Mix well. Then transfer the salad onto a large serving plate.

Now, nicely arrange the cherry tomatoes, the sun-dried tomatoes and the goat cheese on the top on the salad. Serve the Goat Cheese Salad with fresh bread or croutons.

Do not dress the salad earlier than 30 minutes before or it will become flabby and loose its volume.
