Goat Cheese and Peach Salad

Discover Fenugreek With a Fast Peachy Salad

Fenugreek, a spice used frequently in Indian cooking, might easily be confused with similar-sounding fennel seeds, but the likeness ends there. Fenugreek actually has a maple scent and a caramel flavor. It's primarily used in curries, but I like to use it to season everything from pickles and chutneys to breads and soups. Recently, I used it to bring out sweetness in a warm-weather salad.

In this salad, fenugreek-studded cheese makes an appearance, adding contrast to tart greens that have been tossed in white balsamic vinaigrette. LaClare Farms makes an incredible aged, Gouda-style goat cheese with fenugreek that grates and shreds easily, so it's an ideal alternative to typical Parmesan used in salads. The fenugreek goat cheese, sweet peaches, and greens are a match made in heaven. Become a believer by trying the recipe for yourself.

  4. 1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
  5. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  4. 4 small ripe peaches, cut into thin wedges
  5. Ground fenugreek, to taste

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together Dijon, honey, and vinegar. Slowly dribble in olive oil while whisking vigorously to emulsify oil and vinegar. Salt to taste.
  2. In a large salad bowl, combine salad greens and toss in dressing, one tablespoon at a time until leaves are lightly coated. Toss in cheese and peaches right before serving.
  3. Divide salad between four plates and garnish with extra cheese and peaches. Sprinkle a pinch of ground fenugreek on top of each plated salad.
