Goat's Cheese Salad with Herb and Walnut Vinaigrette. This is a wonderful salad which is suitable for either the Summer or Winter months.

It can be served as a side, starter, or indeed the main meal and goes wonderfully with a chunk of warm bread fresh from the oven.

The addition of the warm vinaigrette poured over the salad really brings out the flavors in the salad and makes a lovely contrast of flavors with the goat's cheese and apple or pear and walnuts.

    Shredding soft cheeses (for tacos or mac-and-Jack) and harder foods (say, potatoes for hash browns); use the side with the large holes. The medium-size holes make smaller shreds of hard foods. The tiny holes turn out fine, crumblike Parmesan. The single horizontal sharp edge is for shaving thin slices of hard foods, such as carrots?it’s great if you’re slicing just one, but for a dozen consider a mandoline.
