Goat Cheese Salad

I don’t think I’m alone in saying that food is good thing. A great thing. MAYBE THE BEST THING EVAR?!

Ahem.

In recent months, I had thought of adding a food component to my blog — recipes, dinner outings, and shopping adventures wrapped in the warm blanket of nostalgia. But the idea remained nebulous as I couldn’t quite figure out just how to shoehorn all that into my humble online abode. Enter 8Bit Kitchen to the rescue! I caught a post over on Herding Cats about this new collaborative blog where gamers and foodies (and foodie gamers) could come together to share in their respective loves. Food blogging problem solved! Well…once I asked to join, that is. With everything worked out, I’m onto my second post (below), and I anticipate posting recipes and food stories to the site a few times a month. So stop on over won’t you? And why not bookmark and share 8Bit Kitchen if you like what you see? 8Bit Kitchen is where gamers and food meet, and you’ll meet lots of awesome people to follow while you’re there (as well as all things FOOD)!

With hot and humid temperatures still in full swing, here’s one of my favorite summer salads. Granted, this is a “cooked” salad, and maybe the results are closer to “veggies on toast” than “salad,” but it works nonetheless. I adapted it from a recipe by the same name from one of my favorite cookbooks — Favorite Recipes: Vegetarian (Parragon, 1999). I added in a couple things and deleted others (olive paste — yuck). I also changed things up a little in order to utilize our toaster oven rather than the regular oven, which heats up the house in a flash. Instructions for both are below.

This recipe makes four portions, each with three pieces of goat cheese. A couple portions of this salad are filling enough for a light dinner, or single portions serve as a great accompaniments to just about any meal.
