Dry pasta (250 grams, or a little more than 8 ounces)
Pesto or tapenade (start with 4-5 ounces, about half a jar)
Artichoke hearts, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh grape tomatoes (halved) and/or other flavorful bites
Extra virgin olive oil

This recipe is so versatile and easy I promise! It is more of a “formula” than a recipe. Be creative and have fun!
Add something crunchy like walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, pepitas…(for crunchy satisfying texture)
Add some fresh fruit like apples, grapes, pears, orange supremes…(for that burst of freshness)
Add some dried fruit like cranberries, cherries, raisins… (for a sweet/tart chew)
Add something with a little bite like red onion, pickled onion, green onion…(for a kick)
If you don’t like goat cheese or want to make this a hearty meal replace the croquettes with grilled shrimp or chicken, and add a sprinkle of blue cheese crumbles or feta.
You can also change the dressing to mix any of your favorite Island Olive Oil and vinegar pairings
