It’s delicious, cheaper and contributes towards those 5 a day everybody is on about. Today I have used it to make this beautiful lettuce wraps with goat cream cheese and walnuts.
Goat’s cheese is not for the faint of heart. If you don’t like it feel free to substitute it with normal cream cheese.
It doesnt take lots of money to make something special, sometimes is really just trying to find the right inspiration to create something different.

Ingredients for 6 lettuce wraps with goat’s cream cheese
gem lettuce salad 6 leaves
150gr soft goat cheese (or standard cream cheese)
1 small tsp of powdered sugar
extravirgin olive oil
Firstly start by washing the salad leaves carefully. Pat them delicately with kitchen paper towel. You want them clean and dry but not broken.
In a small bowl combine the soft goat cheese (or cream cheese) with a sprinkle of black pepper, one small tsp of icing sugar and the juice of half lime.
I have used lime juice instead of lemon cos I think it adds up a lot more of nice zesty notes to the dish.
With a sharp knife chop the walnuts in small pieces and add it to the bowl.
Remember to leave few for decoration.
Using a fork, mix all the ingredients gently to let all flavors blend together.
Take a spoon or a teaspoon and start to fill the lettuce leaves with the cheese.
After that put some cream cheese in the middle of the leaf (check photos for reference)
Sprinkle the top of your goat’s cheese lettuce wraps/boats with more chopped walnut, and some pink peppercorns here and there.
Drizzle over with olive oil and it’s done!
