Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 ounces mixed salad greens, of your choice
  • 1 ounce chopped fresh herb (chervil and chives) (optional)
  • 3 ounces goat cheese
  • 1 ounce pecans, roughly chopped
  • Vinaigrette Dressing
  • 1 teaspoon diijon mustard
  • 4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 8 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper


  1. Cover a plate with the salad mix, scatter with herbs if using, drizzle with a little vinaigrette and dot with the goat's cheese over the top.
  2. Put the pecans in a grill pan and toast under a hot grill pan for 1-2 minutes until they smell delicious and are lightly browned. Watch them carefully, as they burn quickly.
  3. Remove the pecans from the heat as soon as they're ready and toss over the top of the salad and serve at once.
