Fast and Easy Goat Cheese Appetizer Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 1/2 cup assorted olives (I used a mix of dry-cured gaeta olives and marcona almonds)
    3 fresh thyme sprigs
    3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
    Freshly ground pepper
    1 (4- to 5-ounce) fresh goat cheese medallion, or 2 (2-ounce) goat cheese buttons
    Crackers, flatbread, or baguette slices, for serving

Directions

  1. Heat olives, thyme, oil, zest, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small skillet or saucepan over low heat until fragrant; do not simmer. Cool to room temperature.
  2. Pour olive mixture over goat cheese, and serve with crackers, flatbread, or baguette slices.

Serves 4.
