I love goat cheese so this was a have-to-make for me! It is very savoury and easy to make too! I am taking this to a party tonight to have with melba toasts. The only problem is that I will probably serve it cold. I ran out of brick cream cheese and had to use spreadable so the warm dip is far too runny. My bad! Made for Went To The Market tag game. Thanks Boomette! :) UPDATE - When I served this cold, it separated and I had to keep stirring the milk back into the mix. Serve it the way that it was intended to be served!
Mmm, what a wonderful dip recipe!!!! Boomie, this is truly outstanding! All the flavours go so well together and make for a scrummy dip! I luved the hint of goats cheese paired with the shallot and herbs. Very moreish! The only thing I changed was to leave out the sugar. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this great recipe with us, that Ill certainly make again! Made and reviewed for Everyday Is A Holiday Tag Game May 2010.
I made this goat cheese dip for a dinner party that I was hosting yesterday night and I was not disappointed. The dip was incredibly easy to prepare and tasted fantastic. It was devoured by the 4 of us--none was left. I used fresh chives from my garden and did not use the black olives. I followed all ingredients as posted and served with baked pita chips, which were very complimentary. I will definitely make this again. Thanks!
