Herb Marinated Goat Cheese makes a nice season spanning appetizer because it takes the abundance of late summer herbs in such a rich, comforting sort of direction. The tangy herbaceous cheese smeared onto a toasty slice of bread is beyond delicious.
olive oil, enough to cover the cheese in your container
red pepper flakes
fresh cracked black pepper
Thinly slice the goat cheese into thin rounds. I like to use a piece of dental floss wrapped once around and pulled to create thin even slices, about 1/8 inch.
Coat the bottom of your dish with oil, and add the minced garlic. I like to use a garlic press to get the garlic really fine. Mix in the garlic to get it evenly distributed.
Arrange a layer of cheese on top. Snip or slice some of each of the herbs on top, along with a sprinkle of salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.
Cover the cheese in more oil. Add the rest of the cheese rounds over the top. Add more herbs and seasonings, then top off with oil so everything is covered.
Choose a wide shallow serving dish that will accommodate your cheese in one or two layers. The cheese is delicate and won't hold up under the weight of many layers, so plan accordingly. I like to use glass to show off the pretty layers.
