Goat Cheese Tart On Phyllo
- 1 package phyllo dough
- 1 cup olive oil
- 8 ounces fresh goat cheese
- 2 cups mixed greens - (rounded)
- 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 3 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 cup chopped black olives
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
Remove phyllo dough from package and cover with a dry towel. Using a pastry brush, spread olive oil on 1 sheet of dough. Place another sheet on top and brush with more oil. Repeat 3 more times to finish with 5 layers.
Cut the dough into 4 equal squares. Place each square on an inverted ramekin on a sheet pan. Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 5 to 8 minutes or until golden brown.
Make the vinaigrette by simply mixing all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Cut the 8 ounces of goat cheese into 4 equal parts. Place the goat cheese into the phyllo "cup" and put in a 300 degree oven for about 2 minutes. Remove from oven and place onto a plate. Toss the greens with the vinaigrette and place on top the cheese. Serve immediately.
