Goat Cheese and Basil Dip
Prep time: 5 minutes
Yields: 4-6 servings
 4 oz goat cheese
6 fresh basil leaves
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
 1. Spread the goat cheese on a serving platter or plate, using the back of spoon to make it smooth and even. Chop or shred the basil leaves and spinkle on the goat cheese. Drizzle the honey and balsamic vinegar evenly over the cheese, and top with sunflower seeds.
2. Serve immediately with crostini and enjoy!


Is it possible to use something else in place of the honey? I avoid honey for ethical reasons, so if there was any way to make this taste just as delicious, I’m up for it! It looks so delicious my mouth is watering just looking at it.

Hi Stephanie! You can always leave the honey off entirely, but the sweetness it gives the cheese is part of the experience. I would try some coconut nectar on there. It has the consistency of honey and is like a light, pure maple syrup, but it’s rich in minerals and amino acids.

Dark agave would taste good, it’s like honey but is vegan
