Goat Cheese and Strawberry Tartine

Goat Cheese & Strawberry Tartine

This week’s French Friday’s with Dorie recipe was a super-easy appetizer called Goat Cheese and Strawberry Tartine.

Here is the non-recipe:  Spread soft goat cheese on slices of baguette.  Top with strawberry halves, sprinkle with freshly ground pepper, and (optionally) drizzle with balsamic vinegar.  Voila!

I used a balsamic glaze from Trader Joe’s.  I should have practiced my drizzling skills first, because as you can see in the picture below, my drizzling was more like big drops and not very pretty.

The best thing about this week’s recipe is that I actually had an appropriate event to enjoy these!  We had my mother-in-law over for a very-belated Mother’s Day dinner and this was our appetizer.  I served the tartines with a light, slightly bubbly, white wine and it was delicious.

What a perfect late-spring/early-summer appetizer!  Very easy and delicious.

  1. I think your drizzling is just perfect – and I am sure that everyone didn’t care about the look of the drizzle; they were just happy it was there :-)
    Have a great weekend.

    I’m not a whiz at drizzling myself, but I like the way your balsamic looks on the plate. The important thing is that it made this even more delicious!

    They look great to me, drizzle and all! I loved this recipe and will be making it many more times while strawberries are in season.

  4. Your drizzling looks generous and natural. Perfect! I’m glad that you and your family enjoyed them.

    How does one even drizzle in an orderly, pretty way? lol. I love the sloppiness of a drizzle on things such as these beautiful tartines. It matches their informal nature and fits perfectly. Beautiful tartines!

  6. They look good to me! A wonderful appetizer for a belated Mother’s Day!! Glad they were enjoyed by all!

  7. My mother was in town last week too and so we had these as part of our Sunday brunch. Perfect. And my drizzling skills need some work too.

    Lovely that you got to share these as a celebration meal – they are perfect ! We just shoved them in our mouths while standing at the kitchen island proclaiming that none of us could believe the combo worked so well !! I made another large plate the next day for lunch. A winner for sure ~ Tricia

  9. What a beautiful and tasty dish! It would go perfectly with some bubbly drinks :)

  10. How perfect for a belated mother’s day celebration. They look delicious (and well-drizzled). I’m belated at catching up on everyone’s posts from last week.

  11. these were just the perfect thing for early summer :)
