Avocado, Grape, Goats Cheese & Pecan Salad

This summery lunchtime salad is a favourite – it’s refreshing, light and crunchy. If you don’t have pecan nuts then toasted pine nuts or walnuts work just as nicely!

To serve 2 people you will need:

  • 1 bag of mixed salad leaves
  • 1 punnet of red grapes, washed and halved
  • 2 ripe avocados, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 handful of pecan nuts, chopped
  • 1 block of soft goats cheese

For the dressing you will need:

  • Olive oil
  • Honey
  • Mustard
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • Squeeze of lemon


Empty the bag of mixed salad leaves into a salad bowl and add the chopped grapes, chopped avocado and pecan nuts, then crumble the soft goats cheese over the top.

For the dressing, mix together a generous glug of olive oil with a spoonful of honey, spoonful of mustard, drizzle of balsamic vinegar and a crushed of finely chopped clove of garlic and a squeeze of lemon juice. Drizzle over the salad and add salt & pepper to taste!
