This is a simple starter or side salad that would also be delicious served atop some toasted sourdough, bruschetta -style.


  • 150g goats cheese

  • 1 handful rocket

  • 1 handful watercress

  • ½ walnuts, lightly toasted

  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped mixed fresh herbs

  • 1 Tbsp dukkah or za’atar spice mix (dried mint also works well)

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

  • 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar


  • 1.

    Mix together your fresh and dried herbs on a plate

  • 2.

    Roll the goats cheese in to little balls with your fingers (you should make approx 10) then roll them in your fresh and dried herb mix to coat, reserve on a clean plate while you make the rest

  • 3.

    Arrange your rocket and watercress leaves on the plate, scatter over the walnuts then add your herb coated cheese balls – break them in half or leave them whole

  • 4.

    Drizzle over the olive oil and red wine vinegar then season with salt and pepper
