  • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in 1/2
For the Champagne vinaigrette:

Directions

For the dumplings and salad:

Mix goat cheese, mascarpone and chives in a bowl. Roll into small "dumplings" and set aside at room temperature.

For the Champagne Vinaigrette:

Make vinaigrette by mixing together vinegar, Champagne, vanilla, chives, salt, and pepper, in a small bowl. Add oil in a slow stream by whisking constantly.
