Nectarine Pomegranate Salad with Soft Goat Cheese

Make salad less boring and more enjoyable with this vibrant bright summer salad tossed with sweet juicy nectarines, pomegranate seeds and soft goat cheese. Nectarines and peaches are actually the same species, but nectarines tend to have more flavour, aroma and have firmer flesh. You can swap one for the other. Nectarine's skin is safe to eat. In fact the skin has fiber, vitamins, and adds more flavour. So, removing the skin is optional and absolutely a personal choice. And use any mixed leaves you fancy.

  • 1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp White balsamico vinegar
  • 3 tbsp Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • 3 Ripe yet firm nectarines or peaches, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 70 g Lettuce or other leafy greens
  • 1 Small red onion, peeled and sliced into thin rings
  • 1-2 Scallions, thinly sliced
  • Seeds of 1/2 pomegranate
  • 80 g Soft goat's cheese
  • 1 tbsp Parsley, chopped
  1. In a bowl, whisk ACV, balsamico vinegar, and olive oil. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  2. Place nectarines or peaches in a large pot of boiling water for 10-15 seconds or until the skin splits. Remove with a slotted spoon. Immediately place in an ice water bath to cool the peaches and stop the cooking process. Use a paring knife to peel the skin. Halve the peeled nectarines, remove the pit and cut into wedges.
  3. Wash the lettuce or any leafy greens, then spin-dry. Tear the leaves into bite-size pieces and place them in a salad bowl. Add in sliced red onion, sliced scallions, peach wedges and pomegranate seeds.
  4. Drizzle the dressing over and gently toss together. Divide the salad into two plates. Top with soft goat cheese. Drizzle with a bit of olive oil and a few grinds of black pepper.

the nectarines and the goat cheese sound like a wonderful combination. I've got a whole bag of nectarines. Maybe I'll add some to a salad- love your idea.

A perfect, fresh, tasty and precious recipe, Angie. Thank you so much for sharing.

Angie, You surely do eat healthy foods... That is a very attractive salad with an interesting variety of ingredients. Love goat cheese so that's a real plus for me! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

We eat our weight in nectarines this time of year, but I've never put them in a salad. This looks totally irresistible, Angie! Definitely needs to be on our summer menu!

The Yum List 27/7/21 02:04

Gosh, you make me drool every time I read your list of ingredients.

Gingi 27/7/21 02:58

Now this looks like a fun way to eat nectarines! <3 -

savorthebest 27/7/21 04:41

lovely combination of flavors. This is a great summer salad

Fran @ G'day Souffle 27/7/21 04:50

This salad has a great combo- combining the sweet and the 'salty' goat's cheese. You must have a pomegranate tree at your house since you have been busy with lots of pomegranate recipes!

Tisa Jacob 27/7/21 06:11

Such a bright and beautiful salad. I love the nectarines and pomegranate in it!

Yvonne @ Fiction Books Reviews 27/7/21 07:22

I always leave the skin on my fruit, as it is so full of goodness. At this time of year, we also enjoy the flat 'donut' peaches, which taste amazing!

The only thing I may have to swap out is the goat's cheese, as that is about the only cheese I can't eat, but I have plenty of alternatives in mind!

Presentation is immaculate, as always. Thanks for sharing :)

yonosoymillenium 27/7/21 09:14

ya sabes que me encantan las ensaladas, esta tiene muy buena pinta.

Lola Martínez 27/7/21 10:39

No has podido hacer una mejor combinación de ingredientes, me encantan las frutas en las ensaladas, les dan un puntito dulce maravilloso, color y sabor.
Un beso.

I just ate a nectarine for lunch today! They are so delicious now and this salad looks like a wonderful way to enjoy them!

Raymund 28/7/21 01:20

Wow, the flavour and colours on this one are all contrasting in a very good way

Federica Simoni 28/7/21 14:10
