Our go-to spread, fondly referred to in the Clif Family Kitchen as “Goat Mix”, takes spreadable goat cheese lightened with ricotta, brightened with lemon and given more depth of flavor with olive oil and parmesan cheese… its the perfect layer under endless bruschetta and crostini toppings. For a quick and delicious holiday treat, serve with our sweet and zippy Red Pepper Jam.
“Goat Mix” Ingredients:
5 oz goat cheese, soft spreadable chèvre type
1/3 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp Clif Family olive oil
1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp kosher or sea salt
Fresh ground black pepper
Toasted baguette slices or crackers
Place all ingredients in small mixing bowl and stir to combine. Adjust lemon, salt and pepper to taste.
Serve on toasted bread or crackers, topping with our red pepper jam.
We love this cheese-spread combination with our seasonal fig jam and persimmon butter too.
