We are in the midst of a cucumber surplus.
Cucumber with Olivada and Goat Cheese
Serves 5 as an Appetizer
1/2 Cup Olives, chopped (Pimento Stuffed works fine)
1/2 Cup Capers
2 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
1/4 Cup Goat Cheese
3 tbsp chopped Fresh Parsley
Salt and Pepper
1 Small clove of Garlic
Thinly slice cucumbers, arrange on a plate with each slice overlapping the other. Roughly chop the olives and capers. The latter is a pain in the a, but its okay if some are left whole. Finely chop the parsley and mix in with the capers and olives. Mince the garlic and then using the side of a knife, make it into pasta and mix in with the balsamic, salt and pepper. Drizzle in olive oil until the mixture isn’t dry. Sprinkle some goat cheese over the cucs, add the olivada, and then some more goat cheese.
