Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For vinaigrette, combine dressing, shallots, 1 tsp mustard, olive oil, lemon peep, 1 Tbsp lemon juice, 1/4 tsp pepper in a screw top jar and shake to mix.
  2. For quesadillas, combine goat cheese, cottage cheese, 1 Tbsp lemon juice, 1 tsp mustard, rosemary, and pepper in a small bowl.
  3. Spread 2 Tbsp goat cheese mixture evenly over each tortilla.
  4. Arrange 1 cup chopped chicken over goat cheese mixture on 4 of the tortillas.
  5. Top with remaining goat cheese tortillas. (Each tortilla sandwich should go tortilla, goat cheese, chicken, goat cheese, tortilla).
