We think the World is in need of more really good salad recipes, like our Spinach and Walnut Salad with Goats Cheese and Apple.
Salads should always be simple to make, taste edible when naked and taste spectacular once properly dressed with a vinaigrette. In this way they can be rustled together within a few minutes for a quick, light lunch outside in the Summer sun, or to accompany a larger meal.
For this particular salad we would recommended our Raspberry, Apple and Walnut Oil Vinaigrette.
This dressing uses our Walnut Oil which creates a spectacular creamy depth of flavour, bringing the spinach leaves to life and complimenting the Goats Cheese beautifully. Our Walnut Oil is handmade for us in East Sussex, using handpicked walnuts.
As an alternative dressing do consider also our Elderflower Vinegar and Lemon Oil Vinaigrette.
- 10 cups of baby Spinach leaves
- 1/2 cup of toasted Walnuts
- 1/3 cup Goats Cheese
- Raspberry, Apple and Walnut Oil Vinaigrette
Trim, wash and dry the baby spinach leaves and place in a large bowl. Chop up both walnuts and goat cheese into required bite size pieces and add to the bowl, mixing all contents thoroughly.
Prepare some Raspberry, Apple and Walnut Oil Vinaigrette in accordance with our recipe.
Finally, toss the salad in your vinaigrette, ensuring all the spinach leaves are coated well. Serve on large plates, possibly along with freshly baked bread, and provide any remaining dressing on the table for your guests to add more as required.
