Chevre Chaud~~Warm Goat Cheese Salad

Posted on Updated on

Chevre Chaud SaladToday was just one of those days that I couldn’t find time to eat(a doughnut at a meeting doesn’t count).  By the time I was headed for home, I was ravenous.  I called my husband and asked him to make me a salad.   When I got home, there was a plate of Chevre Chaud waiting for me.

My husband spent a lot of time in France in the 1980s for his job.  As a result, he go to eat a lot of meals of his French coworkers.  This salad with warm goat cheese is one he got to love.  He started making it at home.  It’s simplicity in itself.  It’s fast to make.  And we always seem to have goat cheese around.  It’s our go to dish when we are in a hurry to sit down and eat!

Ingredients

8  one inch slices of French bread, lightly coated with garlic oil

8 1/2 inch goat cheese rounds

12 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary

1 clove of finely minced garlic

12 head lettuce, we prefer either butter crunch or romaine

1 tomato thinly sliced

Thinly sliced red onion

For Dressing

1  tablespoon red wine vinegar

1  teaspoon Dijon mustard(we prefer Maille mustard) 

1  garlic clove, minced (or put through a garlic press)

1/4 cup olive oil

Directions

Preheat Broiler.  Toast French bread on both sides

Place the bread on a baking sheet and top the rounds of cheese. Sprinkle with thyme and rosemary.

Make the vinaigrette. Mix together the vinegar, mustard, garlic, and oil. Add salt and pepper if you like.

Place the cheese-topped croutons in the oven and bake for 6-8 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling.

Put the lettuce, tomato, and red onion on the plate. 

Place the cheese-topped croutons in the oven and bake for 6-8 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling.

Top the salads with the hot cheese bread, top salad with the vinegrette and serve at once.

All I can say is so good!

If you think this is a little to simple for your taste, I found a couple of more recipes.
