Ok I went a little crazy on this one but I thought I wanted to have every bite a flavor combination explosion in my mouth and I think I did it here. You have the fresh taste of compari tomatoes (use what you have in season) with beautiful goat cheese fried with panko. The balsamic with the olive oil adds sweetness to bring it all together with the rendered salty pancetta. Finished with the nutty crunch of the toasted walnuts and chives. Whew! I just loved this one and this is how I made it.
