Chive Goat Cheese Dip

chivegoatcheesedipI love cheese. Occasionally I get a craving for a particular kind and have to do something about it. This time it was goat cheese. A couple of days after the craving began I was sitting on the porch enjoying the morning breeze. Near me was a big pot of tall, bright green chives. With guests coming over for dinner there was a need to have an appetizer, so this dip was born!

Previous goat cheese cravings resulted in appetizers like these cucumber bites, also these stuffed sweet peppers or this mushroom goat cheese soup, or cheese balls, which I often make during the holidays. My favorite use of goat cheese is in these stuffed flank steaks.

The combination of the goat cheese, sour cream and mayonnaise made for a very creamy dip base, and the chives, garlic and onion bits added complimentary flavors that traveled well as part of crudités!

Chive Goat Cheese Dip

1 cup goat cheese
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 handful fresh chives (about 1 cup chopped)
1/4 cup finely chopped white onion
2 cloves finely chopped garlic
1 teaspoon sea salt

In a medium bowl combine goat cheese, sour cream and mayonnaise. Whisk until smooth.

Add lemon juice, chives, onion, garlic and salt. Whisk more until everything is combined.

Chill for at least an hour before serving.
