Goat Cheese Spread with Lemon & Honey

2016 American Honey Queen Kim Kester stopped by News 8 this Morning to talk all things honey, and share a honey recipe.

Goat Cheese Spread with Lemon & Honey

Ingredients:

8 oz. fresh goat cheese
4 Tbsp. HONEY
3 Tbsp. low-fat Greek yogurt
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 small clove garlic, grated
1 tsp. lemon zest
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. coarse salt
1 tsp. fresh thyme, oregano, sage, lavender, or other herb that matches the herb in the HONEY (optional)

Directions:

Place the goat cheese in the bowl of a food processor and add 2 tablespoons of the HONEY, the yogurt, olive oil, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon of the lemon zest, 1/8 teaspoon of black pepper, and the salt. Pulse until creamy and well blended. Transfer to a small, shallow serving bowl and smooth the top with a rubber spatula. Sprinkle the spread with the remaining 1/2 tsp. HONEY and sprinkle with the fresh herb. Serve with crackers or crostini as a nibble with drinks or a cup of tea.
