Summer Salad with grapes, goats cheese and honey mustard dressing…

This delicious salad was served as an entrée at La Forestiere, Monclar de Quercy, though instead of the grapes, Monique used fresh figs, which were equally delicious paired with the soft goat’s cheese. The honey mustard dressing is a personal recipe of mine. Summer fruits make a great substitute in salads. Let me know what fruits you use in your salads in the comments below….

  1. I love so many lovely fruits in salads, strawberries or fresh figs with blue cheese, oranges with fennel and feta, watermelon with Spanish onion, rockmelon and/or honeydew with prawns or chorizo, mango – green or ripe with seafood or chicken and a good bit of chopped chilli….. Definitely will try your grapes with goats cheese, and your honey mustard dressing. Also the kiwi fruit with polish sausage mentioned by Pooja will be worth a go.

  2. I will make this but I’ll substitute the goats cheese for something else. My husband and I used to eat it regularly but on one occasion we got some that was gone off. It sat in my throat for days and I could never enjoy it since. I love mustard dressing!

  3. Hello Lorelle, this looks beautiful. I must read your post about Monclar de Quercy next.
    And I have been using Pomegranate seeds on my salads. They would also go well with the beautiful goats cheese in your recipe.
    Lovely post thank you 💐✨💐


      1. Yes they are so versatile. That’s probably a more apt addition in a middle eastern salad…I seem to add them willy nilly 🤔🌺
