      5 plus stars for this recipe. Not only does it taste great, it's a beautiful company dish if you make the little effort it requires to lay it out. I used fresh tomatoes and yellow wax beans I had just bought at the farmer's market. My only comment is that I had difficulty cutting the goat cheese so it remained sliced so I sprinkled it on top. Just as pretty either way. I used chive goat cheese, and you could use that or another herbed one to add another dimension. Excellent recipe, will be making this again.
