Dip season (aka: the holidays) are coming up and this is one that I have made for years that is always a major crowd pleaser, plus with its red and green colors, it suits the season.
If you need to put this together in a snap, it’s easy to buy all the components and assemble. For this particular batch, I experimented with making them all myself (links attached in the recipe below). Either way it’s delicious.
If using purchased goat cheese, mash in a bowl adding milk or cream to help it soften. When I used my homemade goat cheese it was soft enough it didn’t need this added liquid.
Spread the cheese on a serving dish, top with the pesto and dried tomatoes and finish with the toasted pine nuts. I like a grind of fresh black pepper over the top.
Serve with your favorite crackers or toasted baguette. De-lish!
