Feta Nuggets on a Bed of Salad

With our love for green leaves, my husband and I could almost put cows to shame....if we do not have salad for a few days, both of us start displaying withdrawal symptoms. Cheese is not too far behind on the pecking order - at least for my husband, though I am more selective when it comes to cheese. I do love Feta, however, so putting the two together was but a natural consequence, especially after we ate something similar at the neighborhood restaurant.

By the way....guess what we are having for dinner tonight??? :-)


Ingredients 

4 handfuls - mixed salad greens ( mixed pack of endive and frisee)
2 handfuls - radicchio, cleaned, washed and dried
1 medium size - carrot, peeled and grated
3-4 - cocktail tomatoes, quartered
200 gram - feta cheese 
1/4 cup - bread crumbs
a few drops of olive oil + 1 tsp olive oil 

Dressing 

4 tbsp - olive oil
4tbsp - balsamic vinegar
3tbsp - honey
salt and pepper to taste 
Whisk together eveything in a bowl/jar and adjust the flavours if needed.

Method
  1. Cut the feta cheese into squares, drizzle a few drops of olive oil over them and apply the bread crumbs. Coat them well.  
  2. Heat a non-stick pan, and pan fry feta cheese using 1 tsp olive oil until brown.
  3. In a bowl, add the salad greens, radicchio,carrots, tomatoes and toss in the dressing. Add the feta cheese and serve immediately.
