8 ounce goat cheese log, rolled in herbs

6 to 7 cups frisee lettuce, 3 bundles, trimmed

1/4 European or seedless cucumber, halved lengthwise, then thinly sliced

3 tablespoons chopped or snipped chives

16 grape tomatoes

1/2 cup shelled pistachio nuts or sliced almonds

1/4 red onion, sliced

2 to 3 tablespoons chopped tarragon leaves

1 small shallot, minced

1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

1/4 lemon, juiced, about 2 teaspoons

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper


  1. Cut goat cheese into 4 equal portions and reserve.
  2. Divide the frisee among 4 plates. Scatter the cucumber, chives, tomatoes, nuts, onions and tarragon equally among the portions of lettuce. Crumble a 2-ounce portion of cheese over each salad.
  3. Place shallot in a small bowl with vinegar and lemon juice. Let vinegar stand 5 to 10 minutes. Whisk in extra-virgin olive oil in a slow stream. Drizzle dressing over each salad, then season with salt and pepper.
