Luscious, sweet, sour, creamy, tangy and smooooth. Wonderful way to gild the lily. I think this works well as a salad or as dessert. If goat cheese were unavailable, I'd substitute cream cheese or something with a smooth, fluffy/dense texture. Dh wondered how much trouble it would be to make himself another serving. I told him nothing to it, very simple. Thanks, CountryLady.
