1 tablespoon butter

8 ounces goat (chevre) cheese
soft unripened chévre
2 tablespoon thyme
fresh chopped
*
1 teaspoon black pepper
freshly ground
¼ cup hemp seed oil
or heavy olive oil

1 tablespoon vinegar
apple cider
1 tablespoon apple juice
1 x salt

2 cup lettuce

Directions

To make the vinaigrette.

Whisk together the oil, apple cider vinegar, apple juice, salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl set aside.

Slice the apples cross-wise into 4 thick apple rings. Brown the apple rings in a skillet with the butter over medium high heat until soft and browned nicely.

Divide the goat cheese (Chévre) into 4 equal portion and shape into round discs about the same size as the apple rings.

Coat each disc of goat cheese with the fresh thyme and sprinkle with pepper.

Place the goat cheese disc on top of the apple rings. Broil for about 3 minutes or until the top is golden brown and bubbling.

Toss the lettuce with half of the vinaigrette and divide among 4 plates. Top the lettuce with the warm goat cheese and apple rings.

Drizzle the remaining vinaigrette over the top. Serve.

The flavor combination is amazing. The earthy and nutty flavour of hemp seed oil combines beautifully with the tartness of the goat cheese and apples.

If you can't find hemp seed oil you may substitue any other strongly flavoured oil such as a high quality olive oil.
