Creamy Goat Cheese, Pesto and Burst Tomato Dip

Perfect Pairing:  Crackers


Summer!  It truly is the most wonderful time of the year.  I am soaking up every minute because I am already panicking that it is almost July.  Wait!! I was going to do so much more in June!  


I am lucky enough to live at the lake this summer until we close on our new home at the end of July.  I’m not going to lie, it doesn’t suck living and working here.  I pinch myself daily looking at the beautiful views. 


A TGIF cruise is a favorite summer tradition.  We load up the pontoon with friends, food and drinks.  We set sail (motor) into the sunset with some chill music and enjoy the appetizer buffet in front of us.  Heavenly.


This appetizer is perfect for a TGIF cruise or any appetizer night.  A layer of whipped goat cheese is topped with prepared pesto and finished with burst cherry tomatoes.  Drag a cracker through all of it and you have an incredibly flavorful summer app.

Lindsay at Perfecting the Pairing

  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • 1 Tb olive oil
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 4 oz goat cheese
  • ¼ cup cream cheese
  • ½ cup prepared pesto
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  In a bowl toss the tomatoes, olive oil, Italian seasoning and salt and pepper, to taste.  Toss onto a greased cookie sheet and roast, tossing occasionally, for 25-30 minutes.  The tomatoes should just start to burst. In a food processor combine the goat cheese and cream cheese, process until smooth and season with salt and pepper, to taste.  Spread the cheese mixture on a platter and top with pesto and roasted tomatoes.  Serve with crackers.
