Recipe – Easy Goats Cheese and Grilled Vegetable Salad

I have mentioned I am trying to be good and shift a few pounds for our Wedding/ Summer Holiday and so I have swapped my usual lunch of a sandwich, crisps and snacks for a much healthier salad.

However, I have found that it is very easy to get bored of having the same, or at least very similar, food everyday so I have been mixing it up a bit and experimenting with different salads and ingredients.

Today’s recipe is so easy it isn’t really a recipe but more of a shopping list should you want to recreate a lovely oven-roasted dish in less than 5 minutes.


My secret?


A jar of grilled antipasto, which is available in most supermarkets. The lovely thing about these little jars is that all the prep and cooking has been done for you, there is a great selection of ingredients inside (mine included peppers, gherkins, olives, tomatoes, artichokes, onions, mushrooms and capers) and the vegetables usually come in a delicious herb-infused oil meaning you don’t have to worry about a salad dressing either!

I simply prepared a bowl of fresh salad (I only had lettuce and cucumber in my fridge!), drained the vegetables and drizzled over a little of the flavoured oil.


All that was left was a quick mix then a few pieces of goat’s cheese on top…delicious and so simple!

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
