I love going to the Westport Farmer's Market. Even though I support our local CSA at Stone Gardens Farms from Shelton, CT and have more vegetables than I can shake a stick at, I like to visit the Farmer's Market in town. There are great vendors of various things beyond vegetables. Some of my favorites include
- Andrew's Honey
- Wave Hill Bread
- Beltane Farm - goat cheese
- Box Car Cantina - best tamales north of the Mason-Dixon line
I told the vendor at Beltane Farm how I like to make a goat cheese salad. I thought I'd share it with you. It's so easy and it turns an ordinary garden salad into a scrumptious delectable treat from the garden (or in this case, Farmer's Market).
You'll need three ingredients to turn any salad into a Farmer's Market delight.
- Beltane Farm's Fresh Chevre - or your favorite goat cheese
- Olive oil
- Italian Style bread crumbs
Put a very small amount of olive oil in one dish and the bread crumbs in another.
Using unflavored dental floss, slice a one-inch thick slab of cheese.
Coat cheese in olive oil.
Coat in the Italian bread crumbs.
Bake on a sheet covered with aluminum foil at about 450 degrees for 5-10 minutes just until the cheese is warm and soft. I prefer to use my toaster oven. The cheese will be very soft, so gently transfer to the top of your salad.
