Pear chèvre salad


This is the deal:
last sunday {better known as easter} I ate to much.
Not just a little... but waaaaay to much.
I had: alligator, mussels, melon with prosquitto, portugese tarlets, chocolate cake, fruit tart, tortilla, a cheese platter and fruit salad.
On one day.
True story.


It was a magical day, indeed.

And that's not all;
last week I ate carrot cake for breakfast, lunch ànd dinner.
Two days in a row...
Crazy much?

So this whole blogging-thing has taken its toll.
And my tummy is getting fatter too.


So instead of going for a jog 
or taking the stairs instead of the elevator 
I just bought myself an issue of lightcooking.
And I made myself a fancy pants lunch salad.

A girl has to start somewhere, right?





Pear and chèvre salad with honey
serves 4
with bread as a lunch of without as an entree.

4 small pears, thinly sliced
2 T lemon juice + a glass of water
125 g chèvre cheese, thinly sliced{about 4 ounces}
2 cups herb salad mix
100 g mix of nuts and raisins {3 ounces}
4 T honey

one: soak slices of pear in the mixture of lemon juice and water (to prevent them from turning brown)
two: place pear slices, salad, nuts and raisins in layers on four plates.
three: top with the 'head' of the pear with the stem; put the little towers of pear on top of a little nest of mixed salad.
four: drizzle the honey around the pear and serve.

{Yes, I am aware that this is a reaaally lame word-joke)

Oh Ben, I would be honored to be the victim of your robbery ;-).
Linking back would be awesome, though.
