Goat Cheese and Tapenade Spread


I found this recipe at blog called Sweet Peas and Pumpkins. She's a Mommy Blogger and posts recipes on her blog. My cousins came into town and we had people over so I needed to whip up a quick appetizer. I remembered this recipe and tried it out. I LOVED it! This is seriously easy folks. I will be honest, it did get mixed reviews but the majority liked it. It has a pretty strong olive taste, but I love that so this is on my appetizer list of favorites.

Goat Cheese and Tapenade Spread

1 - 8oz package of reduced fat cream cheese
1 - 4oz package of goat cheese
1/4 - 1/2 c of prepare tapenade (Trader Joe's if you can find it)


Let the cheeses sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes to soften. Mix cheese and tapenade in a bowl. Place in the refrigerator until firm. Serve with crackers or vegetables. Maybe even some crusty bread would be good.
