I am crazy about warm salads, or any salad in general that has interesting ingredients. I eat salads most days for lunch. Our work restaurant makes a different salad every day, often with such delicious ingredients such as duck, lamb, lentils, goat’s cheese, feta, watermelon, or mango. I love that they are able to constantly invent new and delicious salad combinations and so it’s impossible to get bored eating salad everyday for lunch!
This recipe is my salad of the moment. The roasted beetroot and roasted pears are simply to die for, while the contrast of the crunchy and sweet roasted red onions with the soft and creamy goat’s cheese is exquisite. And then to top it all off, the amazing aroma and intense flavour from the fresh basil pesto dressing brings it all together into an incredibly delicious salad. Nothing boring going on here!
This salad is a good enough meal to serve by itself. But if I’m serving it for dinner for my hubby, then I like to whip up some of my potato nests to serve next to the salad (recipe coming soon!).
