Ingredients

4 ounces chevre (soft goat cheese, usually sold as a log)
1/4 cup lightly toasted pine nuts
1/4 cup dried cranberries
3 tablespoons balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing, or less to taste

In a food processor, combine all ingredients. Process until mostly smooth. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides of the processor bowl several times during processing. Serve immediately or refrigerate. Spread will thicken when refrigerated.

Notes

Found this recipe in the newspaper.....sounds great to me.

The mellow creaminess of goat cheese marries wonderfully with acidic flavors, making it an excellent choice for this simple cheese spread studded with dried cranberries, toasted pine nuts and balsamic vinaigrette. This is a wonderful spread on crackers, celery and other "dipping" vegetables, or used in place of mayonnaise on sandwiches.

A dash of local for every season
