Fig and Goat Cheese Salad Recipe

Fig and goat cheese salad recipe

A unique composition

Today, I am starting a new challenge that I hope will help me restart living healthier and hopefully lose some weight.

I’ve been cooking a lot lately, and I unfortunately cut off all salads and raw veggies from my diet, so I think it’s time to be back!

As I am travelling on the 26th of next month, I have one whole month for the challenge. I’ll call it: #30Days30Salads.

During this month, I commit to add 30 different salad recipes. Okay, not 30. A small confession: this first salad, I prepared it a few days ago, and that’s how I felt how much I missed salads. So I am giving myself a small push: I need 29 salads in 30 days.

This goat cheese salad is exceptional. I had a lot of figs at home – end of season – and I wanted to do something interesting with them, so here’s my masterpiece!

Fig and Goat Cheese Salad Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 Lollo rosso lettuce
  • 1 bunch of rocket leaves
  • 100 g goat cheese, crumbled
  • 12 figs

  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp Flax seeds

To prepare the dressing:

  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Method:

  1. Arrange the lettuce leaves in a serving bowl.
  2. In a medium bowl, put the tomato halves, the mushroom slices, the flax seeds and the crumbled cheese. Gently mix. Transfer to the serving bowl.
  3. Form an X on top of the figs using a knife and add them to the bowl. Sprinkle with the flax seeds.

  5. Pour the sauce over the salad when serving.
