I've come across more than a few recipes for grilled or roasted late summer fruit salads dressed with goat cheese dressing lately. After some consideration, I went gourmet with this dressing as I happen to have some high quality vinegars in my pantry, but feel free to substitute whatever you have on hand, such as rice vinegar, white vinegar, a little splash of dark balsamic vinegar in place of the white, or some apple cider vinegar if you please. If you are sparing with the vinegars, this dressing won't fail to please. If you have a barbeque, do consider grilling the fruit, though I was pleased with the roasted peaches and plums.
I'm quite certain I will be serving this creamy goat cheese dressing all year round over a variety of vegetables. As is requisite for cooks of all shapes and sizes and vocations, you must taste your food before serving and quite honestly, I tasted the dressing just as is and could easily have eaten a few teaspoons right then and there without any accompaniment. It's really that good.
