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.
