  • 5 oz baby leaf lettuce (140g: baby spinach, baby romaine etc.,)
  • 1 hand full sliced red cabbage
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 250 g goat cheese
  • 2 Tbsp black sesame seeds or white sesame seeds
  • 2 Tbsp hemp seeds
  • 2 Tbsp dried cranberries
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp tahini
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil


  1. Finely chop dried cranberries and add to a small bowl. Add sesame seeds and hemp seeds and mix well.
  2. Take about 1/2 Tbsp of goat cheese into your hands and roll between your palms until a ball forms, then roll goat cheese ball in seed mix and place on a plate. Repeat until all goat cheese is in balls.

  3. Heat a non-stick pan over very low heat.
  4. For the dressing, add sesame oil, tahini, 1 Tbsp honey, balsamic vinegar and 2 Tbsp olive oil to a mason jar and shake until well combined.
  5. Wash salad leafs if necessary and finely slice cabbage if not done already.
  6. Once pan is very hot, add 1 Tbsp olive oil and 1/2 Tbsp honey, stir well, then add seeded goat cheese balls. Constantly move around with a silicone spatula and when they start to lose shape immediately remove from pan and place on a plate.

  7. Add salad leafs and cabbage strings to salad bowl, scatter blueberries on top and add goat cheese balls on top.
  8. Add salad dressing right before serving.
