Get 2-6 Goat Cheese Logs(depending on # of people) and one tub of creme fresh.
get FRESH not dried- chives, italian flat leaf parsley, mint and thyme.
Leave the Goat Cheese/creme fresh out so that it will soften. Finely chop all fresh herbs, put into medium size bowl, slice a lemon in half and squeeze the juice into the herbs in bowl; ***little tip, put lemon in microwave for 10 secs and that will loosen all thr juices.***make sure you squeeze with the open side up so that the seeds don't go in. Take a micro plane or small shredder and shredd a tiny amount of the lemon zest into bowl. Don't go as far as the white part of the lemon because that part is bitter. Add a pinch(1/4 tsp?) of sea salt and a few twists of fresh ground pepper. Add in your softened cheeses(if they sren't soft enough to mix, pop in microwave for 10-20 secs) mix all ingredients together. MOST important...do a taste test, you'll know if it needs something more! Put into serving dish, wrap with saran and put in fridge, until almost party time. Take out and sprinkle with some of the fresh herbs and a lemon twist on side of dish add serve with melba toast or bagel chips.
Super Easy and ALWAYS a hit!! you can serve it with veggies too, but hey, i say party = reason to have carbs!!
I don't usually measure and I get all of the herbs from my garden, so it's hard for me to write/type it!! I also use it as a topping om salmon. If you like Like salmon, spread some of the mixture on top if it and bake at 450 for about 15-20 minutes. you can tell b/c the color of the fish changes. It's Delicious!
