Salad with goat's cheese and caramelized walnuts

Do you know that? You go shopping, just need a bit of it and a bit of it for your cooking today and then that: every ingredient you need is not available.

You can tell from the raspberries that they really had better days, there is vinegar, of course, but the favored red wine vinegar is just off and goat cheese raisin? “Nope, we do not lead them!”

“It’s great!”, One thinks in such a moment, especially if one had planned such a wonderfully enticing-sounding recipe as I did yesterday. The current deli seems to have been around for a few months, but I discovered it only a few days ago and promptly fell in love with the title salad “herb salad with goat cheese”, mhhhmm.

Now you could of course swing to the bike and jet to the nearest supermarket, but you could also (like me) just change the plan.

“Not then,” I thought to myself and unceremoniously packed some red and yellow cherry tomatoes, romaine lettuce, walnuts and a goat’s cheese roll. Freestyle and such.

The result was definitely convincing and will surely please anyone who likes to make his salad a bit sweeter, but still hearty and satisfying eats.

    Heat the sugar with a tablespoon of water in a pan until golden yellow caramel is formed. Add the walnuts and cover with the caramel, then remove from the pan and leave to cool on a piece of baking paper.

  1. Stir olive oil, balsamic vinegar and honey and season with salt, pepper and a teaspoon of thyme. It’s best to try it with a spoonful of honey first and then add a little more if necessary, the dressing with two spoons was a bit too sweet for me.

  2. Now cut the romaine lettuce into strips and halve the tomatoes, place them together with the salad mixture in a large bowl.

  3. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees while cutting the goat’s cheese into slices about 0.5 cm thick. Spread the slices on a plate and add a small blob of honey, then place in the oven for about 8 minutes until the cheese is slightly brownish.

  4. Mix the salad with the dressing, place the goat’s cheese slices on top and add the caramelized walnuts as the crowning finale. Ready and good appetite!

For me, the next two days are about the North Sea. Enjoy a bit of sea air, work and eat fish sandwiches, I’m looking forward to it!

Have a wonderful day and see you soon,
