Fennel Pomegranate Goats Cheese Salad

As the weather gets a little warmer, I start to crave that lighter, crispier texture of a salad. To help satisfy this craving, I decided to whip together an old favourite for lunch today – my pomegranate. fennel and goat’s cheese salad. It’s so simple to throw together and tastes freaking amazing. Perfect to pair back with… well, anything really! I even like to enjoy it on it’s own.

Fennel & Goats Cheese Salad

Serves: 4               Prep Time: 10 Min               Cook Time: 10 Min


  • 1/8 red cabbage, finely chopped
  • 2 generous handfuls of rocket leaves
  • 1 medium fennel bulb, finely sliced
  • Seeds of 1 pomegranate
  • 2 cups walnuts (activated preferred – see post below)
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil, softened
  • 1 tbsp. sweetener of your choice (RMS, Honey, Maple)
  • 100g goat’s cheese (optional)
  • Olive oil and red wine vinegar to serve (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Combine coconut oil, sweetener and walnuts in small bowl. Spread onto baking paper and roast for 5 minutes or until golden.
  3. Combine chopped cabbage, rocket, fennel and pomegranate seeds in a large bowl. Toss to combine. Top with crumbed goat’s cheese and walnuts.
  4. Drizzle with olive oil (and red wine vinegar if you’re using) before serving.


If you’re pressed for time, I like to mix a dash of sweetener with some water. Use this mixture to coat the activated walnuts before adding them to the salad – no cooking required 😉
