Wild Herbs with Goat Cheese and Pomegranate

This delicious salad is perfect as a light lunch or dinner! Give it a try and let us know what you think.

Preparation time 16 minutes

4 – 5 Tbsp. of goat’s cream cheese
1 small bunch of chives
1 shallot
1 Tbsp. of hazelnuts
2 Tbsp. of pomegranate seeds
3 Tbsp. of olive oil
1 Tbsp. of white wine vinegar
1 tsp Dijon mustard, coarse-grained
Cress according to taste
2 handfuls of wild herbs

In a small bowl, season goat’s cream cheese with sea salt and pepper and shape into praline-sized balls. Place on a plate, cover and briefly put in the freezer to set. In the meantime, prepare the toppings by rinsing the chives under cold running water, dabbing dry with paper towel and cutting into fine rings. Peel and halve the shallot and cut into fine cubes. Mix both ingredients together and set aside as a topping. Briefly toast hazelnuts in a pan all around, without adding fat, over medium heat. Then chop finely and set aside as another topping. Remove goat’s cream cheese balls from the freezer and roll each in a topping, creating a colorful variety. Then put in the fridge. Mix a dressing of olive oil, white wine vinegar, Dijon mustard and cress, and season with sea salt and pepper. In a large bowl, mix wild herbs with the dressing. Arrange equally in 2 bowls, or in deep plates, and arrange goat’s cream cheese pralines and pomegranate seeds on top. Enjoy!
