Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Nutty Goats' Cheese Salad

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Chop the sweet potatoes (skins on) into large, bite-sized pieces

Cut the red onions into quarters, leaving the skins and root on

Tip: This stops them drying out and falling apart when roasting

2 Nutty Goats' Cheese Salad

Add the chopped sweet potato and onion to a baking tray

Drizzle with olive oil and season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper

Put the tray in the oven for 20-30 min or until the onion is tender and the sweet potato is cooked and starting to crisp

3 Nutty Goats' Cheese Salad

While the sweet potato and onion is cooking, wash the baby leaf salad and pat dry with kitchen paper

Once dry, add it to a large mixing bowl

4 Nutty Goats' Cheese Salad

Add the pine nut & seed mix to a separate baking tray

Put the tray in the oven for 5 min or until the seeds have darkened slightly in colour

Once toasted, remove the tray from the oven and leave to cool

5 Nutty Goats' Cheese Salad

Meanwhile, combine the white wine vinegar with 2 tbsp [3 tbsp] olive oil and season with a pinch of salt and pepper – this is your dressing

Chop the chopped dates up a little more, so they are very finely chopped

6 Nutty Goats' Cheese Salad

Grind a generous amount of pepper onto a chopping board, add the toasted pine nut & seed mix and the chopped dates and chop the lot roughly – this is your fruity seed mix

Press the goats' cheese rounds into the fruity seed mix – these are your seeded goats' cheese rounds

Tip: Apply a good amount of pressure so that the mix sticks to the cheese

Save any fruity seed mix that didn't stick for the next step!

7 Nutty Goats' Cheese Salad

Once the vegetables are done, carefully remove the skins from the cooked onion by cutting off the root and peeling off

Separate the onion quarters into petals

Add the onion petals, cooked sweet potato, and remaining fruity seed mix to the salad bowl
