Herbed Goat Cheese Dressing
Makes a bit more than 1 cup.
Creamy goat cheese and our Herbes de Romance team up in this luscious dressing. Inspired by the classic 'Herbes de Provence' the fragrant combination of herbs and flowers almost magically transforms the humblest dish into something special, try it on omelets, baked fish, roast chicken, and in potato salad or rice. This recipe comes just in time for the start of salad season, but we suspect that you’ll want to make it year round.
Try drizzling the dressing over a simple salad of early season head lettuce, baby arugula, some chive flowers, and lots of thinly sliced radishes. Top with crumbled hard-boiled egg.
2 ounces chèvre-style goat cheese
2 tablespoons buttermilk or plain kefir
½ cup mild oil, such as canola or grapeseed
¼ cup white wine vinegar
1 small garlic clove, grated (½ teaspoon)
1½ tablespoons Herbes de Romance blend
¼ teaspoon sea salt
Black pepper to taste
Put all the ingredients in a bowl or jar and use stick blender to combine them until the dressing is smooth and creamy. Use the dressing right away or store it, tightly covered, in the fridge for a week or more.
