RECIPE
CITRON ET CAVIAR SPREAD

My Citron et Caviar is  delightful and elegant dip and spread wonderful during the holidays, especially at New Year’s Eve soirees. 

A creamy blend of Greek yogurt and goat cheese provides a subtle base for the brightness of fresh lemon juice, and the pop of lemon zest. Chopped scallions (available this week at New Earth Farm) bring a bit of sharpness as well as color to the party. Here’s how I made it:

In a food processor, add 1 cup of Greek yogurt, 1 crumbled goat cheese log, 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, 3 tablespoons chopped chives or green onion tops, 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, 1 teaspoon lemon zest, and salt and pepper to taste. Process until smooth, transfer to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate until ready to use. You can make this the morning of a party. Just before service, top the spread with a generous amount of caviar.

There are many ways to enjoy this dish: serve generously spread on blinis, as a dip with whole grain crackers, as a filling for tea sandwiches, or folded into an omelet.
