Goat Cheese Dip for Parties, Sandwiches, and Salads


Sexy Nerd's parents recently gifted us a fancy assortment of cheese from a goat farm near their home. Soon after, a certain someone said he hates goat cheese and wanted nothing to do with it. More for me! I turned the goat cheese into dip, which I served with tortilla chips and buttery crackers.

That same someone who hates goat cheese? Yeah, he pigged out on the dip.

Later, when I combined the leftover dip with milk to create a DELICIOUS dressing, the goat cheese hater enjoyed a gigantic salad covered in it.

Oh, and this same person who would never, ever eat goat cheese may have also made himself a sandwich on two different occasions, substituting my goat cheese dip in place of mayonnaise both times.

So, you know...
You're Not Fooling Anyone, Sexy Nerd!


Goat Cheese Dip with Herbs
(Give them a visit - lots of yummy ideas!)

Combine the following: 6oz goat cheese feta, 2 C nonfat sour cream, 8 oz nonfat cream cheese, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 tsp lemon juice, 3 Tbsp dried onion, 1/2 C chopped fresh basil, 3 Tbsp dried Italian seasoning.

Let everything mellow in the fridge, covered, overnight. I nearly added diced green chili to this before trying it (here in Albuquerque, it's what we do) and am so glad I didn't. It's perfect just as it is! You would never guess that the dip is full of fat free cream cheese and sour cream...probably because the goat's milk feta is so jam-packed with fat. Just a guess. Totally worth it though! Besides, it's healthy fat...probably.

Actually, the fat content in goat's milk isn't too bad, at least according to Google. But now I'm rambling. 

Oh, and if you still have goat cheese to use up, be sure to try my Breakfast Potstickers with Avocado. I created them for a recipe contest and they're AMAZING! They've even been featured by Huffington Post.

Enjoy!
