Layered Goat Cheese & Olive Dip
For your Shopping Cart:
The king of all olives, the Greek Calamata, is featured in this layered dip featuring goat cheese and thyme. With its stunning presentation, this dip makes a perfect party appetizer.
- 11 ounces fresh goat cheese
- 3/4 cup light cream
- 1 cup DeLallo Pitted Calamata, chopped roughly
- 1 cup DeLallo Green Olives Gigante, chopped roughly
- 1 sprig fresh thyme leaves
In a small bowl, mix the goat cheese and cream together until smooth and able to be spread easily.
Spread 1/3 of the cheese into the bottom of a clear glass bowl. Next, sprinkle the chopped Calamata olives overtop; make sure to arrange the olives all the way around to the walls of the bowl, so that the presentation is most attractive. Spread another layer of goat cheese on top of the Calamata olives. Top that layer with the Green Gigante olives. Finish the dish by spreading the remaining cheese on top of the green olives. Smooth the top surface. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Sprinkle the fresh thyme on top for garnish and serve at room temperature with an arrangement of crisp flatbread, crackers or crusty bread.
