Marinated Goat Cheese is my all-time favourite appetizer. The combination of ingredients offers the most spectacular burst of flavour, and is definitely an easy, yet sophisticated experience.

Ingredients

  • 6 Ounces Fresh Goat Cheese in log form
  • 3 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, crushed
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Thyme Leaves
  • 1 1/4 Teaspoon Cracked Black Pepper
  • 12 Pimento Stuffed Green Olives, pitted and chopped
  • 1/3 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Sliced Baguette, plain or multi-grain

Method

Step 1

Cut the goat cheese log into 4 equal parts. Place in bottom of a shallow dish with lid. Combine the vinegar, garlic, fresh thyme leaves, pepper, olives and olive oil until well blended. Pour over goat cheese, cover and refrigerate for a minimum of two hours, up to several days.

Step 2

Before serving, warm to room temperature for approximately 20 to 30 minutes.

Step 3

To serve: Place one portion of goat cheese on a small plate, mounding the olive mixture on top. The oil and vinegar will pool for dipping. Offer a basket of fresh baguette slices along with individual spreaders to smooth the goat cheese mixture on with. Enjoy!

Step 4

Try using garlic stuffed olives, or olives marinated in hot peppers for example for a change of pace.
