Roasted Peppers and Goat Cheese

This tried-and-true recipe was given to me by my dear friend, Marty. It was first served to me at a Thanksgiving dinner going on 20 years ago now, and I continue to pull this out for special occasions. 

The secret is the mint!

Roasted Peppers and Goat Cheese

6 bell peppers, roasted, peeled and sliced
3/4 c goat cheese, softened

2 tsp lemon juice
3 T red wine vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
2 T mint leaves, finely chopped
6 T olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
pinch pepper

Marinate the peppers for 2 hours before serving.

Each serving should include a slice of French bread, smeared with goat cheese, and topped with marinated peppers.

Farm box ingredients used: garlic, mint
