Really Good! I stuffed some mini bell peppers with this, and the combination was just wonderful. The butter adds smoothness to the texture of the goat cheese, and the garlic and chives add a very nice, fresh note. I should have cut back on the salt, since I used salted pistachios, but I'll make a note of that for next time. I'll be enjoying this spread on vegetables for my lunches in the coming week. Thanks so much for posting a wonderful recipe!

This is such a great spread! I couldnt stop eating it as it was so tasty! The strong flavour of the goats cheese was mellowed perfectly by the sweet pistachios and the chives and garlic added a great bite. I used roasted pistachios, so left out the salt, but otherwise stuck to your recipe and LOVED it! Ill certainly make this again and again! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this winner with us, Syd!

This is a pretty tasty spread. I love goats cheese and this was brilliant. The only thing was that I thought the garlic was a bit strong, but then I know some people like it that way!
