Ingredients

Honey Whipped Goat Cheese

Instructions

  • 1. In a bowl, whisk together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fig preserves, garlic, shallots, lemon zest, basil, thyme, and chili flakes. Add the olives, then add the sun-dried tomatoes with oil and toss to combine. Let sit 30 minutes or up to 5 days in the fridge.
    2. Meanwhile, combine the goat cheese, cream cheese, honey, and a pinch of salt in a food processor and pulse until smooth and creamy. The goat cheese mix can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days, but bring to room temp before serving.
    3. Spoon the goat cheese into a serving bowl, then top with the olives and marinating oil. Serve with fresh herbs, bread/crackers.

Notes
