Apple, Goat Cheese and Tuna Napoleon

Jump To Recipe

It’s apple season!!!  Quite possibly one of my favorite produce seasons of the year, seeing as I eat an apple 6 out of 7 days of the week.  I love ’em!  Can’t get enough of them in my diet.  I’m a granny smith girl, myself.  The more tart the better.  One of my most favorite snacks in the world is a tart granny smith and a big glob of freshly ground almond butter.  So good, especially with today’s recipe Apple, Goat Cheese and Tuna Napoleon.

I have a few really good recipes planned for the week and I hope you’ll like them as much as I do.  To start us off, today’s recipe is a recreation of a dish my sister and I had in Austin, Texas back in April, Apple, Goat Cheese and Tuna Napoleon.  Austin was a huge trip for me.  Their food scene is beyond amazing, and  I walked away with so much inspiration from so many different spots that I couldn’t wait to get home and start cooking.

The dish we’re talking about today, Apple, Goat Cheese and Tuna Napoleon, was another take away from Uchi, a Japanese restaurant.  If you remember, I made a salmon dish with a pickled blueberry and cucumber salad over the summer that was also inspired from Uchi.  You can read about it here.  Literally everything we ate kept getting more and more stellar.  I know I said this in my previous mention of Uchi, but it seriously was the best meal I’ve had since Blackberry Farm in 2009!!!

One of our 18 dishes (not really, but we did eat quite a bit that night) included very thinly sliced apple with raw tuna, goat cheese and ponzu sauce.  When I ate it, I immediately wrote down the contents of the dish so I wouldn’t forget them, because I knew this would be a great dish to make in the Fall.  I of course, put my own spin on it by adding a couple things and serving it stacked instead of spread out on a plate, but either way, it’s a great flavor combo and one not to be missed.  Even though the weather is cooling down and we naturally tend to go for heartier, stick-to-your-ribs meals, I still like things on the lighter side.  This is just such a meal; light, crisp and incredibly flavorful.

*I’m labeling this Gluten Free because the Ponzu sauce I found at Whole Foods was Gluten Free.  If you can’t find a similar Ponzu, I recommend using Braggs Liquid Amino Acids as an alternative.
