Versus THIS recipe for a rustic tomato and goat cheese salad.  This recipe worked from the very first attempt.

I imply, it’s arduous to mess up sweet sliced tomatoes which are dolloped with creamy, dreamy goat cheese, drizzled with balsamic vinegar and olive oil and scatter with recent basil, right?  I served this up alongside some steak that we made with our good grilled steak technique, however truthfully?

I might reside happily ever after with simply this salad alone.  In case you can’t discover heirlooms, attempt it with whatever native tomatoes you possibly can rustle up.  It really is like summer time on a plate.  Pleased tomato season!

Rustic Tomato Goat Cheese Salad


Description

This easy recipe for a country tomato goat cheese salad uses candy heirloom tomatoes, creamy goat cheese, a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and a scattering of recent basil for the right summer time aspect dish.


Components

  • four giant tomatoes, ideally heirlooms!
  • four ounces goat cheese
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Recent ground pepper
  • Recent basil leaves for garnish

Instructions

  1. Reduce the stem out of the tomato with a paring knife and slice the tomato into nice huge slices.  Lay the tomato slices on a platter or on individual plates.
  2. Scatter torn bits of the goat cheese over the tomatoes.  Drizzle with a couple of drops of vinegar (not too much as you don’t need to overwhelm the magical tomato style) and somewhat olive oil.
  3. Grind some recent pepper on prime, sprinkle on some little basil leaves and serve!
