Crostini with fresh blackberries, basil and whipped goat cheese

Whenever I’m at a restaurant, reading the menu, I’m almost certain to order the item that has goats cheese on it. Whether it’s a pizza, pasta, salad…you name it. If it says goats cheese, I’m in.

I know it’s not for everyone – goat cheese definitely has a strong flavor. But when paired correctly with another food item (say fruit), it becomes much more mellow and creamy. I just love it!
