Goat Cheese Tart with Pinenuts; Apple, Mango & Arugula with Pomegranate Dressing
Way back I made a scrumptious goat cheese tart for a casual afternoon bite with a friend. This time I wanted to change it up a little bit and used pinenuts as part of the recipe. I used Giada de Laurentiis's recipe for a pinenut crust which was super easy since it required no rolling of dough. Just process and press into pan.
Ooh, once I blind baked the shell the kitchen filled with the warm nutty aroma. Yum. The filling (Barefoot Contessa) used garlic-herb goat cheese, basil and cream. To finish I sprinkled toasted pinenuts on top ten minutes prior to its exit from the oven.
For the salad I sliced up some apple and into batons and carefully arranged it with arugula leaves. Then drizzled some pomegranate dressing made with pomegranate mollasses, lemon juice, shallots and olive oil.
