Ingredients

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

For serving:

  • 24 crackers or toasted baguette slices

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Serve immediately.
