How to make it

This Goats’ Cheese salad uses Alex James Goats’ cheese which is particularly fresh and delicate. It has a natural acidity and an almost mousse-like texture. We love it on a french stick with a simple salad.

  • In a small bowl mix olive oil, vinegar, Dijon mustard, a drizzle of honey, and salt and pepper
  • Prepare the salad:
    • Cut tomatoes into quarters
    • Slice avocado
    • Use a mix of crunchy radicchio, delicate lambs lettuce and crisp frisée
  • Preheat grill to medium
  • Cut the french stick into 1 inch thick slices
  • Lightly toast under the grill for a few minutes each side
  • Cut the Alex James Goats’ cheese into 25g rounds, keeping the rind on
  • Remove the bread and place the goats cheese slices on the slices
  • place back under the grill for another 2 minutes
  • Pull the goats cheese salad together and dress with the vinaigrette dressing
  • Place the bread on the salad and finish with a drizzle of the vinaigrette
