This goat’s cheese and walnut salad is a time old combination that works every time. Pair the salad with a sweeter vinaigrette or a sweeter fruity wine. You can also add your favourite roasted vegetables. Substitutes well with feta cheese.



  • 150g (5 oz) salad leaves, washed
  • 250g (9 oz) cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 250g (9 oz) goat’s cheese
  • 150g (5 oz) walnuts
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) red wine vinegar
  • 120ml (8 tbsp) olive oil
  • 2.5ml (½ tsp) caster sugar
  • salt and pepper


  1. Tear the salad leaves into bite-sized pieces and put into a large salad bowl.
  2. To make the dressing, put the vinegar, olive oil, sugar, salt and pepper into a screw-topped jar and shake well to combine.
  3. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss well. Crumble the goat’s cheese on top and sprinkle with the walnuts.


  • Serve with French bread as a starter, or light lunch.
