Summer of Easy Gourmet Entertaining with Chavrie Goat Cheese

I love goat cheese.  Its creamy texture and tangy mouth-feel is the perfect complement for a variety of appetizers, grilled meats, salads and desserts.  Goat cheese pairs perfectly with beets, raspberries and strawberries.  In fact, this has been one of my favorite ways to enjoy Chavrie® goat cheese this summer (I am in my infancy of enjoying beets, and raw beets with balsamic vinegar and goat cheese are my limitation at the moment). 😀

And yes, Chavrie Fresh Goat Cheese is gluten-free!

Strawberry Beet Salad with Goat Cheese and Balsamic Vinaigrette:

Shredded Beet Salad with Goat Cheese and Fresh Raspberry Vinaigrette:

I did a twist of the shredded beet salad with raspberry vinaigrette and turned it into a gluten-free sandwich wrap with Boar’s Head Low Sodium Turkey meat:

I recently tried a recipe I found on the Chavrie website for Goat Cheese Hummus (I made my own Hummus and subbed the cilantro for fresh rosemary, YUM!) and served with grilled gluten-free pita bread (I love this pita bread, you can read my review of it here):

So why am I telling you all of this?  Well, August just so happens to be National Goat Cheese Month and to celebrate, I have an exciting giveaway for one lucky reader!

  6. Visited Chavrie's website and I love their products. My favorite is the Herb Flavored log but I also just love their plain goat cheese with some tomatoes and a basil vinaigrette. So I was thinking with that same combination but use the basil and roasted garlic cheese instead. YUMMMY!

    What a great product to be reviewing.

  7. Now that's a great giveaway! Can you believe I've only had homemade chevre? Our friends have goats and always bring goat cheese, yogurt, etc. to support group meetings. Lucky me, for sure, but at first, I thought you'd spelled the name wrong when I read the title. LOL I didn't even know this product existed. Silly me. I'd go for the souffle I think … such a classic. 🙂

  13. I'm really excited about the idea of goat cheese hummus but also the stuffed mushrooms. I have an almost unhealthy love of goat cheese. Whenever my partner buys it she never really gets to put it towards the dinners she bought it for because I chip away at it daily once I see it in the fridge.
