Goat Cheese, Walnut and Apple Salad

Here’s a quick and healthy salad fix. The goat cheese and walnuts are really the major flavors here – that’s why the vinaigrette is so simple.
This takes about 5 minutes to put together.

Serves 4-6


• 4 handfuls (about 150g total) mixed lettuces
• 1 cup walnuts
• 150g goat cheese, crumbled
• 2 red apples, chopped
• 1/4 cup oil (olive, sunflower or grapeseed)
• 3 tablespoons lemon juice
• chopped cilantro (optional)

Mix the chopped apples with the lemon juice. It’ll keep them from browning.
Put all the ingredients (including the apples and the lemon juice) in a large bowl and gently stir together.
Serve and top with cilantro.

  1. Great salad. I’m really appreciating goat cheese lately, the texture is so unique. have you tried Humboldt Fog cheese? It’s a goat cheese with a layer of ash running through it, it’s amazing.

    This is my favorite combination on a salad and I LOVE that you used goat cheese instead of bleu cheese (often found on this salad in restaurants)!

    I love the Humboldt Fog cheese that Sue mentioned in the first comment. I haven’t had it in a long time, but remember it being good. Plus, the line of ash running through it is beautiful.

    This salad looks tasty.

    It reminds me of a Waldorf salad without the chicken. Looks great and I’m already imagining it with some crumbly Stilton.
