  • 2 ounces goat cheese
  • 4 tablespoons toasted pecans, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sliced fresh basil

For the Peach Vinaigrette:

  • 1 medium peach, peeled and chopped
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil

  • ¼ teaspoon coarse salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Pit the peaches. Slice each into eight wedges.
  2. Lightly oil a sheet pan with olive oil. Place the peach wedges on the sheet pan in a single layer.
  3. Do not crowd the pan. Roast 15 minutes or until the peaches begin to brown. Turn once. Adjust the roasting time down as needed so the peaches don’t get too soft.
