My favourite cheese is and always has been goat's cheese. I love it, soft anyway, I'm not so much a fan of the hard stuff. I make this salad with regularity throughout the summer, with whatever ingredients are on hand. And for me a salad is not a salad without dressing, so pick whatever your favourite combination of oil, vinegar and mustard is and go with it.
Warm Goat's Cheese Salad
4-5 rounds goat's cheese
1 small lettuce, separated into leaves
2 slices ham, chopped
2 artichoke hearts in oil, cut into 3
handful black olives, halved
half roasted red pepper, cut into chunks
5 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 portion vinaigrette
Preheat the grill.
Lay the rounds of goat's cheese onto some baking parchment on a baking tray.
Put the salad leaves in a bowl and top with the remaining ingredients except the goat's cheese.
Put the cheese under the grill for about 2-3 mins until golden and bubbling. Place on top of the salad and serve.
