Step 1: Ingredients (2 persons, whole meal)

Picture of Ingredients (2 persons, whole meal)
Salad
"2 Fresh Goat Cheese (round with or without crust)
"300 gram of grapes (green if you like sour or red if you are the sweeter-type)
"100 gram of Rocket salad ( or mixed with other young salad leaves)
"50 gram of Pecan nuts
"1 egg
"1 package of Breadcrumb
"Salt and Fresh Black Pepper
"Oil to bake in

Dressing
"7 spoons Balsamic
"2-3 spoons Honey
"1/2 Lemon

Tools
"The basics
"Baking pan
"Grater (if you don't have one, you can skip this)

Step 2: Dressing

Picture of Dressing
Put the Balsamic and Honey in a small bowl and stir till it's one fluid.

Grater the Lemon Skin and add with the juice to the fluid. If you don't own a grater then just add the Lemon Juice.

Try if you like the taste. If you think it's to sour, add some more honey.. but remember the grapes are also sweet!

Step 3: Pecan; Salted or Natural Unbaked?

If you have Pecan's which are already baked and salted you can skip this step!
If they are only baked, just add some salt! It's possible to roast them (without oil!) but its not necessary!

UNBAKED read here;
Bake the Nuts in a bit of Olive Oil. Add some Salt and fresh Black Pepper.

Keep an eye on them so the don't burn.. after a wile they burn really easy!

After baking;
Place the nuts on a piece of kitchenpaper on a plate. So the can reduce fat.

Step 4: Grapes & Rocket

Make shore the salad is washed. Place it on 2 plates.

Cut the Grapes in half and put them on the plates with the salad.

Step 5: Preparing the Goat Chees 'Jacket'

Take a deep plate or bowl to mix in the egg.
Next to it you place a plate with the Breadcrumb. Leave the package near by, just in case!

Let the Goat Chees 'bade' very gentel in the egg. It has to be cover al over.

Step 6: Breadcrumb

Lay the -in egg covered- Goat Cheese in the Breadcrumb. Cover the Cheese with this Breadcrumb.

Repeat step 2 again, after that step 3 again.. Till you have 3 to 4 layers*.





*The layers have to be as equal as possible. And as solid as possible, that makes it less messy to bake them!

Step 7: Bake the Goat Cheese

Use a good baking pan, and a little Olive Oil to bake the Chees.

Use medium/minimal heath, you don't want to burn it.




Step 8: GoldenBrown

Take +- 7 to 10 minutes per side. Turn very very gently with a spatula and let your hand assist.

If the heat is to low the Cheese wil get to liquid. We don't want that! It has te be crispy goldenbrown.

Step 9: TADAAAA! Your Goat Cheese Salad is ready to eat!

Sprinkle the Pecans around the cheese.

Could this recipe be made without the use of egg?or can you substitute something in place of the egg?
Can we use any leafy vegetable in place of rocket leaves(since it is not available in the area I live in) like lettuce or spinach?
and by "goats cheese" which variety did you specifically mean?
and lastly,what other combination of nuts can we use in this recipe?
I would greatly appreciate it if you would be able to clarify my doubts:-)

I make a similar salad with goat cheese, pears, walnuts, tomatoes, sugar, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and romaine lettuce. You saute the pears in caramelized sugar, then pour the 'glaze' over some crushed walnuts. Sprinkle all the ingredients over the romaine and sliced tomatoes; finish with a dash of salt.
