Avocado Goat Cheese Spread

Maybe you’ve experienced the awesome, creamy intensity of avocado and goat cheese together. Maybe you haven’t. Regardless, you need to try the combination in dip form — stat. We think pretzels would be the perfect dipping vehicle, but if you’re looking for something a little more virtuous, Ashley at Edible Perspective has some ideas below.

The key to this recipe was allowing both the avocado and goat cheese flavors to come through but not mask the other. I started by adding 1oz sections of goat cheese until it was just right.

Garlic, salt, pepper, and lemon were added next but something was missing.

Enter honey and red onion for a little pop of sweetness and kick of contrasting flavor. Just a tiny bit and you’re all set.

Then it’s time to dip.
