With the beautiful warm weather continuing for at least a few weeks longer in the UK, I am finding myself eating more and more salads. I remember being a child and hating the thought of having a salad as it usually meant an iceberg lettuce leaf, a slice of cucumber, and a salad tomato slice, looking very sorry for itself alongside my main dish. I am so thankful that salads are very, very different these days!
This beauty will feed and satisfy the family, but leave out the goats cheese and dressings for under 1’s. You could substitute it with a few dollops of greek yoghurt. Also, you may wish to cook the pears, Peppers and tomatoes so they’re less tough to eat for those without teeth, and obviously cut them appropriately. As with most of my recipes, my hope is that a few small changes can have the whole family eating the same things.
I’d love to know, what is your favourite salad?
1 Pear, cut into chunks
50g Goats Cheese
100g Mixed Leaves
6-8 Cherry Tomatoes, halved
1 Red Pepper, cut into long slices

1 Tsp Dukkah
Splash of Raspberry Balsamic Vinegar (Or any balsamic you have)
Olive oil, to dress
- Mix the pear, pepper, leaves and tomatoes in a bowl.
- Scatter over the goats cheese.
- Top with a little balsamic and olive oil. Then sprinkle the sumac and dukkah.
