Naturally sweet and creamy smooth dessert or salad. I've been trying to cut back on sugar so I only used half the honey and butter spray rather than butter,to no ill effect. Delightful, Dancer.

This was an incredible combination of some of my favorite flavors! I served it with biscuits, spreading the goat cheese on them and it was delicious! It would also be wonderful over mixed greens. Oh, and I used agave nectar in place of honey because it's what I had on hand.
