What I’ve been loving…

Goat Cheese and Veggies

The other day I stopped in my local Starbucks while I was in between appointments and discovered a new Bistro Box – Goat cheese and Veggies. The box contained: cherry tomatoes, bell pepper strips, Haricots vert- french baby green beans, and Persian Cucumber sticks, with container of  tzatziki sauce,  goat cheese, and a packet multi-grain crackers.  I really like it and it seems easy enough to replicate at home.

Here’s how I did it:

Tzatiki Sauce – Yoguri Yogurt Dip – Garden Vegetable, about 2 tbsp

Goat Cheese- Any brand, 2-3 tbsp, I brought crumbled and now just realized that a chunk/wheel form would have made a better presentation. Welcome to the blogging learning curve, Jen!

Muilt-grain Crackers – Ak-Mak Sesame Crackers 1 or 2

Bell Pepper Strips – You can cut up a bell pepper but I found Sweet Mini Peppers on sale at my local Sprouts, 2-3 peppers.

Persian Cucumber Sticks – I found some at Sprouts on sale, English Cucumbers will due in a pinch, regular cucumbers are fine but I find them boring.

Cherry Tomatoes – I used heirloom cherry tomatoes, about 4-5

Haricots Vert – I found these in the frozen section at Trader Joe’s, 3 or 4 beans.

I think it worked out great. I love Starbucks for their Snack ideas. I would love to hear about What you’re loving. Please post below.
