This is a simple salad pairing early autumn vegetables with beautiful goat’s cheese from Ellie’s Dairy in Kent.
Ellie’s produces outstanding goat’s milk, cheese and meat from a small herd grazing on the North Downs. The herd is carefully looked after by people who really care about what they are doing and the result is delicious produce. I used the Kentish Log, a soft goat’s cheese with a tangy goaty flavour, lovely with the fresh crunchy vegetables and zingy lemon dressing.
You can find Ellie’s cheese and milk at Borough Market and other markets in London, and they have a blog where you can keep up to date with the goats’ activities on the farm at elliesdairy.blogspot.co.uk/. The meat is so good that we sell it at Gourmet Goat, also at Borough Market.
Why not try this salad with some grilled kid goat chops to make it a full meal!
