This Mediterranean Orzo Salad with Chèvre recipe is sponsored by Montchèvre, but the content and opinions are my own. Thank you for reading and supporting the brands that make Savoir Faire possible.I don’t know about you, but I love fresh goat cheese. I usually have it with toast and honey or jam for breakfast, with pizzas, crostini, bruschettes, and salads as today’s Mediterranean orzo salad with chèvre!
The simplest soups become a gourmet delight by adding some fresh goat cheese crumbles or pearls (that you can easily make with your hands). Its mild flavor and creamy texture makes fresh goat cheese ideal for all kinds of spreads: with herbs, herbs and garlic, sundried tomatoes, marmalades… you name it!It’s a great ingredient and because of that I didn’t think twice when Montchèvre approached me to create a recipe using crumbled fresh goat cheese! After all there is always fresh goat cheese on my fridge. I’m a cheese person and I can say that besides its versatility, I love fresh goat cheese because I find it easier to digest that any other cheeses, it must be because it has less lactose.
In addition, fresh goat cheese is a great source of protein, calcium and vitamins Besides, Montchèvre is made with fresh, high quality goat’s milk from local, independent family farmers.
Montchèvre is available at your local grocery store. Just look at the cheese department, not the regular cheeses though, but the gourmet side.
Without further ado, following is my Mediterranean orzo salad with chévre. I hope you like it.
