Sweet Goat in a Nest

Recipe courtesy of Le Grenier French Restaurant, 96 Main Street (Second Floor), Vineyard Haven, Martha’s Vineyard


  • 4  ounce package of goat cheese, formed like a hockey puck, not a log
  • 4   sheets of phyllo dough, each sheet should roughly measure 9” by 10”
  • 2   tablespoons walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 2   tablespoons honey plus more to drizzle
  •      salad greens for two

Orange Balsamic Vinaigrette


  1. Preheat oven to 350˚.
  2.  Slice cheese in half horizontally so you have 2 large circles.  Place one circle in the middle of two sheets of phyllo dough. Top with 1 tablespoon of walnuts and 1 tablespoon of honey. Gently bring the four corners of the dough together to loosely form a large chocolate candy kiss. Twist the dough lightly on the top. Prepare the other circle of goat cheese the same way.
  3.  Heat in the oven until the goat cheese is warm and the dough is golden brown.
  4. Toss the greens with the orange balsamic vinaigrette and place on plate. Top with the warm phyllo-dough- encrusted goat cheese. Drizzle honey on the dough and serve.
