Cherry and Camembert Salad

Happy New Year!

I'm starting the New Year with this summery salad that combines some of my favourite flavours: sweet cherries and dried cranberries with creamy Camembert, toasted nuts, peppery greens and tangy balsamic vinegar. I love salads like this on a summer's day - light, but perfectly filling to get you going until the next meal.

There are no exact measurements as I like to throw in ingredients as I please. Just follow your taste buds to adjust the flavours accordingly.

Cherry and Camembert Salad

a couple of big handfuls of mixed salad leaves
a handful of fresh cherries, halved and stoned
a few sliced of Camembert or Brie (in room temperature)
a small handful of mixed nuts, toasted until fragrant
a couple of tablespoons of dried cranberries
2 tablespoons of good balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons of good extra virgin olive oil

Mix all and enjoy!
