Goat cheese is much more versatile than you might think. To highlight this tangy treasure, we’ve partnered with Ashley Rodriguez of Not Without Salt to share tips, insights and her favorite recipes using goat cheese.
My heart was set on frites. So you can imagine my disappointment when the waiter tried to explain to me in both French and English that the kitchen was no longer serving frites. Had we not been so tired after a morning spent wandering the streets of Lyon, we may have continued our expedition for frites, but our weary legs begged us to stay. Left only to pick a salad from the menu, I quickly spotted a version of the recipe below. And I share it with you today because if a salad can leave me no longer pining for crispy fries, then I think it’s something quite special.
Broiling is not something I do every day, and yet whenever I use the hot flame tucked on top of the oven, I wonder why it’s not more of a staple, particularly when it comes to cheese on toast. It is the perfect tool to not just melt the cheese and caramelize it until it nearly emerges as some sort of crispy, savory cheese cracker, but also crisp the bread to an even, deep umber.
Broiling doesn’t take long, but you do want to be sure that everything else is ready to serve so that when the cheese is melted and bubbly all you have to do is set it on the plate and dig in.
If goat cheese doesn’t excite you, then try brie or a triple cream to get similar results for this salad. But really, when it comes to melted cheese on toast, anything goes.
