Four Goat Cheese Dips, One Million Uses


I shout from the cheese aisle! “Buy that little goat cheese log! It is so versatile.” and then I open the cheese drawer in my fridge and whisper, “Crap, I already have two logs I haven’t used.”

I Googled goat cheese spreads that use Greek yogurt because I thought that Greek yogurt might soften the texture of a spread. I was right. I found a Healthy Cheese spread recipe on PopSugar that uses Greek yogurt and a little olive oil. Brilliant. But I didn’t stop there. I figured that once you created the BASE for the goat cheese spread that you could replace herbs with many other things and create many other tasty spreads/dips.

The four goat cheese “dips/spread” that I created were so delicious that I realized that they would be great used as a spread for sandwiches, as a sauce on pasta and so many other things! This is sort of like that little dress that looks great with stilettos, wedges, sneakers, flip flops and even barefoot. You are welcome.
