Warm Goats Cheese Salad

Alpine food is typically of the comfort variety; tartiflette, fondue etc.  But what would be a typical summer dish of the mountains?  With the mountain littered with goats and even a local village where they roam free, would be more local than goats cheese salad?  You’ll find a version of this in pretty much every restaurant locally, but here is our favourite recipe


2 thick slices of local bread per person – pain long is best as it give large slices
2 individual local goats cheeses per person
2 slices of pancetta per person
Salad – whatever you like, plenty of it

For the honey dressing
1 tbs of honey
3 tbs of olive oil
3 tbs of white wine vinegar


Make the dressing first so it is ready to go on straight away.  Combine all the ingredients and give them a shake a good stir

Grill or fry the pancetta so it is so crispy it is rigid

Toast the slices of bread lightly on either side, then add on the goats cheeses and give it another minute or so to warm up the cheese

Put loads of salad of your choosing onto the plate

Top it with the goats cheese toasts and crispy pancetta

Drizzle on the dressing
