French Food Friday - Salade de Chevre Chaud
This week I am trying to stay out of the kitchen as much as posible as it is simply to hot to cook.
Last night I made one of our favourita salads, salade nicoise and tonight we will be having salade de chevre chaud. This is a very popular French dish and I have fond memories of the first time I tasted this in France.
This is the recipe I use as a base and you can remove the nuts and/or add some bacon if you like.
