Being a mum of two hungry boys, I can sometimes forget that there is life beyond spagbol and cereal. I am a practical, fuss free cook and like to make meals that are not only nutritious but simple and quick to make too. There are times though, where I really enjoy making a special effort with food, especially when I am entertaining friends and family.

This salad is simply delicious and is both quick to make and beautifully elegant, perfect to serve for lunch or as a starter when the occasion calls for something a little more special. The goats cheese gets deliciously gooey and goes perfectly with the cinnamon spiced pears and honey and walnut dressing. I know I will be making this many more times before the season is done!
Perfect for any occasion, you can make this restaurant style salad to impress your family and friends any time you like.

- 2x 100g Goats Cheese I used Capricorn
- 1 Egg
- 20 grams Walnuts
- 40 grams Clean Wholegrain Bread I used Cranks but use gluten free if neccesary - crusts removed, torn into pieces
- 2 Conference Pears
- 1/4 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
- 2 Tablespoons Walnut Oil
- 2 teaspoons Acacia Honey
- 120 grams Lambs Lettuce
- 28 Walnut Halves
- Preheat the oven to 180*C and line a baking tray with grease proof paper or a silicone baking mat.
- Cut each goats cheese in half to make 4 rounds of goats cheese, keeping them cut side up.
- Whisk the egg and set aside in a shallow bowl.
- Place the walnuts and bread into a food processor and blitz until they resembles fine breadcrumbs. Set aside in another shallow bowl or plate
- Dip each goats cheese round into the egg and then coat with the nut and bread mixture, making sure you set each round cut side up on the baking tray.
- Place the goats cheese into the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes.
- Whilst the goats cheese is baking, cut the pears in half and scoop out the seeds. Slice up the pears and place them into a non stick pan and sprinkle over the cinnamon.
- When the goats cheese has around 3-5 minutes left, heat up the pears over a medium/low heat until they start to soften, turning occasionally.
- In a seperate pan, gently warm the walnut oil and honey ready to drizzle.
- Plate up the lambs lettuce, dividing it between 4 plates. Top with the spiced pears, goats cheese and walnut halves.
- Drizzle over the honey and walnut dressing and serve.
