lemon honey goat cheese spread

Lemon and honey goat cheese spread in a ramekin with a sprig of thyme and drizzle of honey on a wooden tray with crackers and a spreader.

Lemon and honey goat cheese spread capitalizes on the yin and yang of lemon and honey. It took just one little taste of goat cheese infused with this magic combo to win me over.  I believe simple is best and a recipe that only needs three ingredients is pretty close to perfect.
