This is the most gorgeous salad. I love love love goat's cheese and this salad is full of goat's cheese. It was lovely and warm and the melty cheese with the sausages and potatoes is so good.
Salad with Sausage, Potato and Goat's Cheese (from Thyme for Cooking)
60g soft goat's cheese
2 medium potatoes
1 tbsp olive oil
large handful of fresh basil leaves, chopped
2 tbsp chives, chopped
For the vinaigrette
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 tbs lemon juice
2 tbs white wine tarragon vinegar
1/3 cup olive oil
Cut potatoes into bite size pieces and coat with the olive oil. Put onto a baking sheet in a 200C oven for 25 minutes.
Cook sausages – either on the barbecue grill or in a frying pan on the cook top.
Make the vinaigrette; Combine the garlic, lemon juice, mustard and vinegar in bowl and whisk well. Slowly drizzle in olive oil whisking so that the dressing emulsifies
Put the lettuce and herbs into a bowl.. Add 1/4 of the vinaigrette and toss to combine.
When the sausages are done cut into bite size pieces and add to the lettuce. When the potatoes are done add to the salad. Add the goat's cheese to the salad in small chunks. Add about 1/3rd more of the dressing and toss well. Grind over some pepper and more dressing if you want. Serve.
