Cooking With The Smiling Chef: The Dinner Party – Goat’s Cheese and Walnut Salad

_MG_1494Hi readers,

Second course is a simple goats cheese salad with a wicked balsamic dressing that will tickle your guest’s tastebuds.

The following is another recipe feature from Grapeshot Magazine; the magazine I edit and contribute for at university. Special thanks to Rosemary Cruz for the photographs.


400g goat’s cheese

4 handfuls of baby spinach

1 handful of toasted walnuts

4 tbsp balsamic vinegar

2 tbsp olive oil

Salt and pepper, to taste

It couldn’t be simpler to prepare. Arrange the spinach leaves
on a plate. Place pieces of goat’s cheese on each plate then scatter with the walnuts.

In a small frying pan heat the balsamic vinegar on a medium heat until it is reduced by half. Combine with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Use this to dress the salad.
