This is so good! It took me a little while to get used to eating goat cheese (billy goat gruff). Now, I find I like it very much, and what doesn't go with thyme? Crisp veggies, like celery sticks, carrot sticks, and fennel sticks. I love it with endive. So good! Watch your seasonings, as the olives will provide enough saltiness. When preparing the lemon zest, only use the yellow, as the white part, the pith is very bitter.
