Apricot-Goat Cheese Spread
Fact: If you add goat cheese to anything it makes it 100X better. Not an exaggeration.
I have recently become a full-fledged goat cheese fanatic. Goat cheese baked in marinara sauce and slathered on bread, sprinkled on top of pizza, or mixed into salads. This is some quality stuff.
A few weeks ago, Tony brought home Apricot-Goat Cheese Spread from Whole Foods and I cannot stop thinking about it. It doesn’t help that every time I’ve walked into Whole Foods since then they have yet to carry it again. Blasphemy.
Thankfully, I checked the ingredients list in between scarfing down bites the first time I tried it so I could recreate it for all to share!
It’s sweet, salty, and creamy. For a delicious appetizer, serve it with Salty Date and Almond flavored Raincoat Crisps (found at your local Whole Foods).
