Goat Cheese Marinated with Figs & Fig Balsamic Vinegar Recipe

Goat Cheese Marinated with Figs & Fig Balsamic Vinegar Recipe

Our Fig Balsamic Vinegar is amazing.  It is so delicious that I want to use it in everything!  I have made this marinated goat cheese recipe more times than I can count and it is always the first to go on the antipasti tray! 

3 tablespoons of Fig Balsamic Vinegar
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
cracked black pepper
1/3 cup gourmet quality extra virgin olive oil.  
6 oz. roll of Chevre (goat cheese), sliced into 1/2 inch rounds

Combine  the Fig Balsamic vinegar with the garlic, thyme, pepper, and olive oil.  Place the sliced roll of Chevre in a small container.  Pour the balsamic vinegar mixture over the Chevre, cover, and then refrigerate at least 2 hours (or up to a week).  Serve over crostini (un-seasoned) or spread on crackers. 

Cook’s Notes:

Sometimes I add several chopped dried mission figs to the mixture.  The same mixture can also be used to dress a bed of field greens. 

Whether you pronounce it SHEHV-ruh  or SHEHV, Chevre is a delightfully tart, snowy white goat cheese that turns an ordinary cheese plate into an elegant platter of appetizers!
