You’re telling me goat cheese is actually a hit?

Yes. Yes I am. This stuff gets scarfed down in about 10 minutes after the serving platter hits the table!

I actually learned about this from a fancy friend, with whom I was throwing a baby shower. She says this is one of her three party trick dishes. And with good reason! I’ve tweaked it a tad, but we have her to thank for inspiring this bounteous plate of creamy cheese drizzled with honey and balsamic vinaigrette. (It even sounds luxe as it tastes!)

I love serving this with fresh crostini. Simply cut up a french baguette into 1/4″ slices, and lightly sprinkle with olive oil and garlic salt. Broil for a few minutes until golden and crunchy.

You can also serve it with your favorite crackers for a standard “cheese and crackers” dish if you’re keen on keeping up the classic entertaining tradition. I, on the other hand, like to pretend I live near the Mediterranean, using shnazzy words like “crostini” when given the chance.
