Why not invite your friends over, open a bottle of something wonderful and make a fabulous lemon infused appetizer ?
This recipe below is so easy and is always popular. It is one of my mother in law's wonderful creations and is perfect in the summer when hot weather demands light and fresh dishes.
1 container fresh goat cheese
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
3 sprigs of rosemary- or get creative with any herb you like
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Place the goat cheese on a pretty serving dish and, with a fork, work with the cheese until it has the consistency of a creamy spread. Pour the olive oil over the cheese, coarsely chop the rosemary and add to mixture. Zest the lemon and sprinkle zest over dish and add a bit of fresh lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with flat bread, grilled baguettes or interesting crackers on a pretty serving piece like one of these from The Merry Martini.
