I believe that my food and meals should not only taste great and be made from real ingredients but should also look great. I give great consideration to how food looks and how I plate meals, and in case you needed anymore reasons to eat fruits and veggies, it is those fresh foods that always look great on a plate.  A rainbow of color or a sea of white flour and sugar? The answer is simple to me!

But this dip relies on more than just its good looks, it happens to taste as amazing as it looks. Thanks to Susan for this recipe, it is definitely one I’ll be making again. I took it to my friend Morgan’s Bridal Shower and it was a perfect appetizer for a shower, because aren’t they all about flowers and pretty things?

Herbed Goat Cheese with Flowers

  • 1 large log of goat cheese
  • 8 oz neufchâtel cheese (light cream cheese)
  • Fresh herbs of choice (I used basil and chives)
  • Edible flowers

Combine goat cheese and neufchâtel cheese. Fold in chopped herbs. Form into mound and place edible flowers on top. Serve with bread or crackers.

    gorgeous, and you had me at goat cheese. Where did you find the edible flowers? I will be in MN next week for my brother’s wedding, and we are doing a bridal brunch Friday morning. I would love to do this for that.

    So pretty! I love to roll a log of goat cheese in fresh herbs, slice into rounds & serve on top of salads. The flowers are a beautiful touch!
