Goat Cheese Salad Dressing

8 ounces chèvre, at room temperature

½ cup buttermilk

1 cup heavy cream

¼ cup minced fresh chives

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper


Combine the chèvre, buttermilk, and cream in a blender and blend until smooth. Stir in the chives and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Makes approximately 2 ¾ cups. Blend until smooth but not a moment longer so you don't end up with whipped cream. Consider adding basil, thyme, or Italian parsley or substituting grated garlic for the chives. Keeps for a day or two tightly sealed in the refrigerator.
