Vegetable- Goat Cheese Spread

Here's a colorful, flavorful, cool dip for a hot summer night... Vegetable- Goat Cheese Spread.
It's an awesome sort of dip for dunking cucumber slices, radishes or carrots, as well as sliced baguette.

Lots of crunch. And lotsa veggies within!

This recipe can be found HERE.

Hiya- remember way back when you suggested Trader Joe's Chili Lime chicken burgers? Well I finally made them at your suggestion and we loved them. Just a nice change of pace. Thanks for sharing!

I'm marking this one to try... we have a lot of get togethers this summer, so this would be a nice change from the usual onion soup and sour cream dip!
