I love the taste and texture of a good Chevre…..now add fresh, chilled cucumber and cherry tomatoes and you can enjoy a wonderful flavour explosion.
- 8 oz. chevre
- pinch of finely chopped chives and parsley
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- salt and pepper to taste (a pinch each is great)
- 2 English cucumbers
- 1 dozen cherry tomatoes
- 1/3 cup julienned fresh basil leaves
- 1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
- 1 tsp. avocado oil (great for your heart and arteries)
Slice the cucumbers into 1/2 inch medallions and scoop the seeds from the centre. Slice the tomatoes in 4 lengthwise and combine with the oil and vinegar mixture.
Place a small ball of the chevre in the centre of each medallion and top with a tomato piece and basil.
Tasty and another terrific way to start off the party; add a signature drink, some good friends and the evening begins. I always try to have a hot and cold starter.
You pick, your choice….
