RECIPE: Goat Cheese With Sundried Tomatoes

We love to serve red and green foods as much as possible during the holiday season. Doesn’t this goat cheese look nice and Christmasy?

Slices of fresh goat cheese are topped with marinated sundried tomatoes, and you can serve them in several ways:

  • As an hors d’oeuvre, with crostini.
  • As an appetizer, atop a crostino (grilled or toasted bread).
  • Halved or quartered on a plate with a green salad (arugula, beets and radiccho are good choices, as are these).
  • On a goat cheese baguette sandwich.
  • As part of a cheese plate.
  • If you have leftover pieces, you can use them to top pasta and pizza, or add them to a sandwich or burger.
  •  
    And it’s so easy to make.

    You can buy whole sundried tomatoes, or make your own topping. dice them and marinate them in olive oil with oregano and other herbs*.
