Lemon Rosemary Whipped Goat Cheese - an easy and flavorful appetizer or spread!

Lemon and rosemary are two ingredients that I always have available in my kitchen. Fresh rosemary grows in my herb garden year round and lemons are available from my lemon tree during the winter months. Even when lemons are not in season, I always have fresh lemons stored in my fridge. A few simple seasonings are incredibly helpful when I am trying to make something for dinner at the last minute or need a quick and easy appetizer for a Friday night wine and cheese tasting with friends.

My Sundried Tomato Whipped Goat Cheese is popular for good reasons. Whipped goat cheese combined with a little bit of cream cheese and a few simple flavors creates an appetizer or snack that is ready in less than five minutes. The lemon zest adds a hint of fresh citrus flavor that pairs well with the rosemary.

I paired the whipped goat cheese with Blue Diamond Almond Nut Thins. The Nut Thins are one of my favorite crunchy snacks. They are wheat and gluten free and are available in a variety of flavors. Spread the whipped goat cheese over the crackers and you have a flavorful, crunchy and delicious snack.
