Crunchy Goats Cheese Salad

Mmmmmm. Yup, that’s all I can say. Oh yes, and it’s a bit like a starter you always want more of, but you’re getting more!

Serves 4



  • 4 goats cheese rounds
  • 150g rocket
  • 3 apples, cut into matchsticks
  • 120g pecans
  • 2tbsp maple
  • pinch of salt
  • 4tbsp olive oil
  • 1tsp English mustard
  • 2tbsp cider vinegar


  1. First, make the candied nuts. Heat the maple in the pan until bubbling, stir in the nuts and salt and stir until browning and caramelized. Tip onto a lined baking sheet to cool.
  2. Mix the oil, mustard and vinegar and set aside.
  3. Chop the apple and toss the sticks in 3tbsp of the dressing.
  4. Put the cheese rounds onto a baking sheet and pop under a hot grill until browning and beginning to bubble.
  5. Spread the rocket between your plates, top with the dressed apple, sprinkle with the candied nuts and then set the melting cheese on top. Drizzle over the remaining dressing.
