A goats cheese salad is fab for flavour and taste and great as a light supper or you can add additional ingredients (see below) for a main meal.

Not into Goats Cheese? Swap for feta instead and make a tasty Greek Style Salad!

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • Mixed green salad
  • Baby spinach leaves
  • 1 x pear
  • 50g goats cheese (1 round was 25g)
  • Balsamic vinegar splash
  • Maple Syrup 1 tsp
  • Coconut oil 1 tsp
  • Mixed nuts 50g
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • 8 sundried tomatoes
  • 10 green olives
  • Extras (For a main meal you can add)
  • 2 x baby potatoes per person boiled and sliced
  • 1 x lean chicken breast per person roasted in with a splash of olive oil and herbs / spices of your choice (I used thyme , sage , rosemary)


  • In a bowl wash the leaves and tomatoes – set aside
  • Boil the baby potatoes – set aside
  • Roast the chicken in the oven (I used a slow heat of 150 for 25 minutes and finished under the grill for 5 minutes) - slice and set aside
  • In a small pan melt 1 tsp coconut oil , add 1tsp of maple syrup and a splash of balsamic – add in your mixed nuts and sliced pear, cook slowly to caramelise!


  • You can get creative here...
  • On a bed of your cleaned greens add in your elements, I love the colour and sweet of pear and nuts, the tang of the sundried tomatoes against the strong goats cheese – lots of flavour when you just fancy something different!
