Wow, this was good! I usually don't like mixing cheese and seafood, but the goat cheese was more like a cream sauce. I definitely wouldn't use monteray jack cheese instead. The cucumber salsa was also a nice addition. All in all, this was a unique, tasty quesadilla, and I'm sure I'll be making it again! [Tagged & Reviewed for BEST OF 2012]
