  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. Was visiting my sister and we made this dip! We loved it! We served with sliced banquette bread!
  5. I made this dip Saturday night for a casual get together out at the boat dock. I served with a rosemary cracker lavosh and blanched green beans & asparagus spears, then prepped jicama and red peper slices. It was very easy to prepare as others have noted and came together very quickly. I increased the scallions for eprsonal preference and also ther ed pepper flakes. Thanks so much for posting - I got good reviews!


  1. Wonderful dip! Full of flavour and smooth consistency. I subbed green onions for chives; I served it with tortilla chips and cut up vegetables.
  2. this is simply fabulous, I also added in some fresh minced garlic and used Tabasco sauce in place of the hot pepper flakes, I ran out of shallots so I subbed minced green onion, thanks for sharing Booms, will make again soon!
  3. I substituted cayenne pepper for the hot pepper flakes. Excellent dip with the tang of the goat cheese. Made for Beverage Tag.
