Black Olive and Sundried Tomato Palmier
Black Olive Crostini
Savoury tapenade makes a delicious topping for goat cheese toasts. Great to serve with drinks at a cocktail party.
Maple Balsamic Fig Salad with Goat Cheese Croquettes
In the winter, sweeter Mission figs are in season, in summer the less sweet green figs. Walnuts give this salad a bitter edge to balance the sweetness of the vinaigrette and figs.
Mozzarella and Artichoke Pizza
White pizzas such as this are not tomato-based as are many pizzas and somehow seem more elegant. A rich, quick and easy appetizer.
Ricotta and Roasted Tomato Crostini
Making little toasts for crostini under the broiler is a bit fiddly, but this wire-rack oven method reduces the chances of burnt toast. Ricotta is a delicious and unusual topping.
Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Goat Cheese Dip
Think of this as upscale potato skins! Great at a cocktail party with drinks or at a casual get-together while watching the game.
