Raspberries with Broiled Goat Cheese
A dynamic way to serve fresh raspberries as a fun appetizer.
Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time10 mins
For the goat cheese:
- 8 ounces goat cheese
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
For the raspberries:
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1 pint raspberries
- 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
- 24 crackers or toasted baguette slices
Preheat a broiler to high.
Place the goat cheese in a small, oven-proof dish. Drizzle lightly with 1/2 teaspoon of the olive oil, sea salt and a few twists of a pepper mill. Broil the goat cheese until a golden crust begins to form, about 8-10 minutes. (Use your best judgement, as broilers can vary wildly.)
In a medium bowl, whisk together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, sea salt, and a generous sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper. Add the raspberries and gently combine with the dressing. Tear the mint leaves into pieces and toss them in.
Remove the goat cheese from the oven, and allow it to cool for a few minutes.
To serve, spread the goat cheese on the crackers or toasted baguette slices; finish with a spoonful of the raspberry mix.
