Goat Cheese and Pomegranate Salad

Lately, I’ve had a thing for Pomegranate’s in my salad. I’ve been loving the crisp taste and they just seem to add that something extra to my salads. One of my favorite ways is with Fried Goat Cheese and mixed greens. What’s really better than Fried Goat Cheese? The salad I threw together myself but the goat cheese recipe comes from Ina Garten.

Goat Cheese and Pomegranate Salad
 
Ingredients
  • Mixed Greens
  • 1 Pear
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • ½ Pomegranate
  • 1 11-ounce log of plain or herbed Montrachet
  • 2 extra-large egg whites beaten with 1 tablespoon water
  • Fresh white bread crumbs
  • For the dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons good cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons good champagne vinegar
  • Pinch sugar
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 extra-large egg yolk
  • 1 cup good olive oil
  • Enough mixed salad greens for 6
  • Enough olive oil and unsalted butter for frying
Instructions
  1. Slice the Montrachet into twelve ½-inch-thick slices. (The easiest way to slice goat cheese is to use a length of dental floss.) Dip each slice into the beaten egg whites, then the bread crumbs, being sure the cheese is thoroughly coated. Place the slices on a rack and chill them for at least 15 minutes.
  2. For the dressing, place the vinegars, sugar, salt, pepper, and egg yolk in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade and blend for 1 minute. Season to taste.
  3. Cut the pear into slices, and take out all the seeds of the Pomegranate and rinse under cold water. Toss the mixed green with the salad dressing. Arrange mixed greens onto a plate and top with blueberries, pear, pomegranate, and goat cheese.
