  • 8 ounces goat cheese room temperature
  • 2 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives chopped
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes drained
  • 1/2 cup (loosely packed) fresh basil
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Add the cheeses and olive oil to a food processor and pulse until blended.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and blend until your desired texture is reached. You may need to scrape down the sides of the food processor a couple of times.
  • Season with salt & pepper and adjust ingredients as needed (e.g. add more chives).
  • Either serve right away or refrigerate for a few hours to help the flavors meld. This dip is best served at room temperature (not straight out of the fridge), so let it sit for a bit prior to serving.


  • Servings really depend on how much people eat. This dip is quite rich, so a little goes a long way.
