Since we are about to enter the busiest time of the year, how about a go-to entertaining dip that is delicious, addictive, reduced fat, and so easy to prepare, you won't believe it?
Looks and tastes even better...
Goat Cheese and Tapenade Spread
1 - 8oz package of reduced fat cream cheese
1 - 4oz package of goat cheese (I used the pepper flavor)
1/4 - 1/2 c of prepare tapenade* (Trader Joe's if you can find it)
Let the cheeses sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes to soften, or alternatively, remove from packaging and put in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave at 50% power for 30 seconds, and then stir, repeat if necessary, until cheese is soft.
Mix cheese and tapenade in a bowl. Place in the refrigerator until firm. Serve with crackers, vegetables or whatever you wish.
This recipe is going in my permanent "I need a quick, yet easy and upscale appetizer" file.
We made this for my a bridal shower recently and it was amaaaaaaazing. I used the leftovers for a sandwich the next day. Heaven.
Life is sweet,
