Goat cheese and pomegranate salad. For Aga, the bravest woman …

  1. A handful of rocket salad for a portion
  2. A few thick slices of apple
  3. Three or four of goat’s cheese rounds
  4. One egg
  5. Some bread crumbs
  6. Half a cup of pomegranate seeds
  7. Olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey

Prepare the dressing by whisking together all ingredients until smooth: two tablespoons of olive, one teaspoon of vinegar and a teaspoon of honey. Crack the egg into a bowl and use a fork to lightly whisk. Place the breadcrumbs on a separate plate. Dip the goat cheese in the egg and the breadcrumbs and press firmly to coat on both side. Fry until golden brown and crispy, about 2 minutes on each side. Arrange the garden rocket on the large plate, apple slices and cheese, sprinkle with pomegranate seeds and pour the dressing and it’s ready to eat.

I like lightly grilled apple slices, but they can be fresh.
