Video recipe: Pear and Almond Salad with Goat Cheese

Wednesday, April 4th, 2012

Nothing could be better than salad with cheese, especially if it’s Goat Cheese! Chef Jim Piano from Chick’s Cafe in Philadelphia makes a simple, yet savory and gourmet Pear and Almond Salad with Goat Cheese.

Start out by cooking a vinaigrette.

In a blender chop the roasted shallot and pear then add Dijon mustard and sherry vinegar. Slowly add the oil in a stream while blender is running.

Season with salt and pepper up to your taste!

Next step is serving the salad! In a large bowl toss the greens and pears with enough dressing to coat the leaves. Plate the greens and top with the toasted almonds. Crumble approximately a 1/4 of the goat cheese log onto each serving plate.

Bon Appétit.
