Strawberry, Basil and Goat Cheese Panini


I went picking fruits and vegetables this morning (I took this opportunity to experiment with Instagram!) and came back with three baskets filled with yumminess, among which strawberries and basil. I remembered a recipe for a cake that included these two ingredients and looked for it. That's how I came at the gorgeous photo above (from Cookie + Kate)  : a strawberry, basil and goat cheese panini! Warm, jammy strawberries, tangy goat cheese and fresh basil sandwiched between golden brown, buttery whole wheat levain, served with a side of balsamic honey dipping sauce... Well believe me, it's as good as it sounds. Heaven made sandwich. Seriously. And you can't mess up this recipe (as I said before, I'm a terrible cook). So skedaddle on over to Cookie + Kate and bookmark the recipe right away!
