  • Fleur de sel and cracked black pepper
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh thyme leaves

  2. Heat medium size frying pan with about 1/2 cup grapeseed oil on medium high heat.
  3. Dredge the goat cheese in the egg mixture, then the bread crumbs. Making sure the frying pan is good and hot, quickly fry each goat cheese round for about 2 minutes, until golden on each side.
  4. Toss the mixed greens with the truffle vinaigrette. Divide the mixed greens between 4 plates. Carefully, divide the goat cheese rounds on top of each salad, garnish with a sprig of thyme and serve.
Instructions for Vinaigrette:
  1. For the vinaigrette, whisk together the mustard, salt, pepper and vinegars. Whisking constantly, very slowly drizzle in the grapeseed oil. Store, tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
  2. Add the chopped black truffles before serving.
