Before we dig into the food, I have a favor to ask. At Uni for one of my courses (New Product Development) we were assigned to choose one of the Top 100 European food companies and have to create a new product for their range. After browsing the internet and discussing our options, the group thought that Lindt would be a cool company to design a product for, because who doesn’t like chocolate?
We are now in the process of deciding which product to introduce or design but we need more consumer info. Therefore we created a 10-question survey that should give us a clear idea of how chocolate is consumed and what we have to keep in mind when making a new chocolate product. And who better to ask for advice than all of my foodie friends?
So, if you’d be so kind to spare 2 minutes of your time and fill out the questionnaire I would be very grateful. It’s only 10 questions and it’s about chocolate! Click here to take the survey! Thank you!!!
I wasn’t actually going to post the recipe for this salad but since I need your help I thought I’d post a super easy salad recipe in exchange! I like having pears in the house since they are great in smoothies and a perfect snack. They also make a salad taste fresh and sweet. And I won’t even start explaining how amazing blue cheese dressing is on top of a salad.
Pear, Arugula & Watercress Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing
Blue Cheese Dressing adapted from David Lebovitz
You will need:
- 1 handful arugula
- 1 handful watercress
- 1 pear, sliced into 4-6 pieces
- 25g blue cheese
- 1 tsp. chopped chives
- pinch of salt and pepper
- 20g yoghurt
- 20g milk
- fresh lemon juice
- Take out the cheese from the fridge an hour before preparing the dressing so it softens.
- When you are ready to prepare the salad, mash the cheese together with salt, pepper and chives. Then add the yoghurt, milk and the lemon juice. Set aside.
- Wash the salads and arrange on a plate. Add the pear and dress with the dressing.
I’m taking part in a cooking class tomorrow so I’ll let you guys know how it was on Sunday! I’m really excited and the best part, we’ll be preparing brunch. I can’t wait!
In case you were mesmerized by this salad and forgot what you were about to do…you were about to click here and fill out the questionnaire. Thanks!
Have a great weekend!!!
