So on this rainy / snowy eve, I thought I would propose a simple salad celebrating clementines to make your mind wander to warmer days.
3 - 4 clementines
1 bunch of arugula
1/2 cup of roasted pecans
1/3 cup of Pommegrante seeds
1/3 cup of dried Cranberries
1/3 - 1/2 pound of crumbled Nevat cheese
Homemade Vinaigrette - EVOO, Dijon Mustard, Shallot, Drizzle of Orange Juice,
Salt and Black Pepper to taste.
Nevat is a Spanish pasteurized bloomy rind goat's milk cheese that is semi-firm and dense. Bright, clean and milky with a slightly citrus bent and a smooth sweet finish. Less crumbly than a feta style cheese and more crumbly than a goat's milk cheese yet less creamy than a Brie or Camembert style bloomy rinded cheese. Perfect for salads!
A simple preparation of all of your ingredients topped with your homemade vinaigrette.
