1 cup (250 mL) diced cherry tomatoes
1 tbsp (15 mL) thinly sliced basil
1/4 tsp (1 mL) balsamic vinegar

2 oz (57 g) soft goat cheese or cream cheese


HEAT oven to 375 F (190 C).

COMBINE olive oil and garlic in a microwave-safe dish; microwave on high (100% power) for 20 seconds to infuse garlic flavour.
