Herbed Goat Cheese Spread

Herbed Goat Cheese Spread

8 ounces cream cheese (low fat is fine), at room temperature

7-8 ounces soft goat cheese (depending on the size of the packages you can find), at room temperature

Zest of one lemon, finely grated

1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

1/4 cup chooped fresh basil

1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

Salt and freshly-ground black pepper 

In a large bowl, mix the soft cheeses with the lemon zest and a little salt and pepper.  You can also do this part in a food processor, but if the cheeses are softened you don’t need to.  Gently fold in the fresh herbs (not in the food processor, or the mixture will turn bright green), taste for seasoning, and add more salt and pepper if you like.
