I’m coming off a wonderful weekend and the Sunday scaries were so real! My bestie was in town from NYC and a few of us had a great girls night on Saturday. I also tried two new workouts–FlyBarre and Solidcore (through Classpass…get your first month free with my referral link!)–and both were so good and satisfying. We’ve hosted a Super Bowl party for the past five years and J accidentally booked himself a flight right over the game, so we took this year off and I popped over to watch with our friends next door instead. We did pizza + small apps and I made this delicious dip that I’m so excited to share! It’s easy to make but so flavorful, and is (I think) a unique twist on a typical way to serve goat cheese.
You could also swap out the blackberries for another fruit…I think pomegranate seeds or finely chopped strawberries would be really good. I would ideally stick to berries since the juices add a lot of flavor (and color!) I also just used normal honey from Trader Joe’s but am hoping I end up with some good artisanal stuff soon because this would be the perfect way to utilize something indulgent like that!
Blackberry Goat Cheese Dip
- 5 oz goat cheese
- 2 tbsp sour cream (you can use light)
- 2/3 cup blackberries
- Freshly ground black pepper
In a bowl, combine goat cheese and sour cream until well-mixed. You'll want the consistency to be smooth and creamy.
Once the goat cheese and sour cream are blended, add the blackberries. Muddle them until they're crushed and stir until fully combined with the goat cheese + sour cream.
Drizzle a generous portion of honey on the cheese and top with black pepper to taste. Serve with crackers, bread, et al.
