Goat Cheese Dip Recipe - Great for Parties, Sandwiches, & Salads


My husband'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 flavorful 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!

Anyone expecting this to taste like 'fondue au Chocolat' is going to be surprised.

Goat Cheese Dip Recipe

Combine the following ingredients:
6oz goat cheese feta (note: you can probably make this with regular feta if that's all you have)
2 C sour cream or plain yogurt (or half sour cream + half yogurt)
8 oz cream cheese (I use nonfat)
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
3 Tbsp dried onion
1/2 C chopped fresh basil
3 Tbsp dried Italian seasoning

Let everything mellow in the fridge, covered, for a few hours or overnight.

I nearly added diced green chili to this before trying it (here in Albuquerque, it's just what we do) and am so glad I didn't. It's perfect exactly 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. 

Still have goat cheese to use up? Make my Breakfast Potstickers with Avocado. Yes, potstickers...for breakfast! They've so good that thay've even been featured on Huffington Post.
