Delicious summer appetizer: herb-marinated goat cheese and rosemary flatbread

I made this about a month ago—I believe it was the day before the day before the bar exam. It is a delicious appetizer—really great, fresh, summer flavors. Just looking at these pictures, I'm thinking that I need to make it again soon!

Here is a link to the recipe, which comes from Eggs On Sunday, one of my very favorite food blogs:

Herb-marinated goat cheese with rosemary flatbread

I used fresh basil, chives, and rosemary for the goat cheese and marinated for about 3 hours. The lemon zest is key—don't leave it out, and be generous with salt and pepper as well.

I was nervous about making the flatbread (the idea of “bread” just intimidates me, I think), but it was very easy and quick.

I served the goat cheese and flatbread with heirloom tomatoes, arugula, and a glass of sauvignon blanc. Heaven!

(Thanks Henry for the pictures!)

This was delicious! I got to share it with Karen as I took a break from studying for the bar. I don't think I've ever eaten that much goat cheese in one sitting.

Looks delicious Karen. And Flat Bread is clearly a brilliant way to eat more crackers and feel really fancy. Plus, carbs adn dairy are brain food even if no one has definitively proved it yet.
