A Fancy 15-Minute Goat Cheese Dip with Blueberries

I don’t know about you, but I am a huge fan of goat cheese. The way it crumbles and melts in your mouth is just so satisfying! And its tangy, earthy flavor profile makes it go so well with pretty much everything.

One of my favorite things to pair with goat cheese is blueberries. The combination is simply divine! There’s a blueberry rosemary goat cheese log that I often get at the grocery store, and that’s what inspired this crave-worthy appetizer recipe.

My version is seriously to die for! It’s so wonderfully fresh, and I love how you can adjust the flavor to your liking. Plus, it’s spread out on a plate rather than rolled into a log so you get the perfect ratio of rosemary cheese to blueberry sauce in every bite. It’s also super easy!

What You’ll Need

This appetizer may be a gourmet-looking treat, but that doesn’t mean it’s difficult! You just need the simple ingredients below to make it happen.

  • Blueberries: I like to use fresh berries, but frozen ones will work as well.
  • Lemon Juice: Freshly squeezed.
  • Sugar: To sweeten things a bit.
  • Honey: You’ll need some for the blueberry sauce and some for the cheese dip.
  • Goat Cheese
  • Cream Cheese
  • Salt: To enhance the flavors of the cheeses.
  • Fresh Rosemary: Chopped.

How to Make Blueberry Goat Cheese Dip

Even though the sauce goes on top of the cheese mixture, it’s the first thing we’ll be making. It has to cool down prior to the assembly.

  • Make Blueberry Sauce: Add the blueberries, lemon juice, sugar and one tablespoon of honey to a small saucepan. Cook the sauce over medium heat until it’s bubbling and the blueberries begin to burst, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Let Cool: Remove the sauce from the heat and allow it to cool completely.
  • Combine Cheeses: Stir the goat cheese and cream cheese together until well combined and smooth.
  • Add Salt, Honey & Rosemary: Add the salt, remaining honey and rosemary to the cheese and stir to combine.
  • Assemble: Spread the goat cheese mixture out into a shallow dish, then top it with the blueberry sauce. Drizzle the dip with more honey if desired.
  • Enjoy!

Tips for Success

Before you whip up this one-of-a-kind appetizer, be sure to review the tips and tricks below. Happy cooking!

  • Use Fresh Ingredients: The freshness of this dish is part of what makes it so irresistible. You won’t get the same flavor if you go for bottled lemon juice or dried rosemary.
  • Chill the Sauce to Cool it Faster: Want to speed up the cooling process? Just place the blueberry sauce in the fridge. Easy peasy!
  • Add Rosemary to Taste: You can add more or less rosemary to your cheese mixture depending on how strong you want the flavor to be. The same thing goes for the salt and the honey.
  • Refrigerate if Not Serving Immediately: Unless you’re serving this appetizer as soon as it’s done, pop it into the fridge so it stays nice and fresh.

Variation Ideas

Let’s talk about a few ways you can switch up this dip. It’s truly perfect as it is, but it’s always fun to experiment!

  • Use a Different Berry Sauce: I can’t think of a single berry that wouldn’t go great with goat cheese. Try making this appetizer with Cranberry Sauce or Raspberry Sauce instead!
  • Use Another Herb: If you’re not too fond of rosemary, you can substitute it for any other herb of your choice. Try using fresh thyme or lavender!
  • Make a Cheese Log: If you’d like to serve this appetizer as a log instead of spreading it onto a plate, simply wrap the goat cheese mixture and blueberry sauce into a cylinder using plastic wrap. Refrigerate the log for at least 2 hours before unwrapping it so that it holds its shape.

Storage Instructions

This dip will stay fresh in the fridge for 2-3 days. Be sure to keep it well covered.
