Capricorn Somerset Goats Cheese bakewell truffle with Mixed green salad

 A deliciously different salad, composed of beautifully flavoured Goat's Cheese 'Truffles', flavoured with raspberry liqueur infused sour cherries, rolled in chopped toasted almonds, set on a bed of baby greens and dressed with a tangy Cherry Balsamic Vinaigrette.  Do plan ahead as the truffles need time to set up and chill prior to serving.

For the Cherries

For the Dressing

(You will also be using some of the Raspberry liqueur infused cherries and their juices.)

For the Truffles

(You will also be using about 20 of the infused cherries, the rest will be used in the dressing.)

You will also need 480g of mixed baby salad leaves (about 5 cups).

First infuse the dried cherries with the raspberry liqueur:

Making the Truffles:

To make the dressing:



To serve:

Note:  If making the truffles seems to fiddly for you or you are in a hurry and won't want to wait for them to set up, simply slice the goats cheese into 4 rounds and place one of top of each plate of greens. Scatter with some chopped toasted almonds and a few infused cherries. Drizzle with the vinaigrette and serve immediately. I do hope you will try making the truffles though as they are gorgeous!
