Strawberry Goat Cheese Guacamole-the goat cheese makes this goat cheese extra creamy! The strawberries add a nice sweet surprise too!
It is heating up and that means our food choices are cooling down. I want to eat watermelon for every single meal. I know the baby needs more than just watermelon all day long, so I whipped up the next best thing, guacamole! This time I put a twist on the classic guacamole and made Strawberry Goat Cheese Guacamole. Oh my, it is so good! I couldn’t stop dipping! And the best part? It is super easy to make and you don’t have to turn on your oven. It is a great summer snack, appetizer, or in my case, lunch!
We love using goat cheese to make creamy pasta dishes so I thought it would be a good addition to my guacamole too. I was right! The goat cheese makes the guacamole extra creamy. And don’t worry, I use pasteurized goat cheese so the guacamole is baby safe:)
I flavored the guacamole with the traditional ingredients: lime, cilantro, red onion, and jalapeño. I thought it needed a little something extra so I chopped up ripe strawberries and stirred them into the mix! Best decision ever! The strawberries add the perfect amount of sweetness and I love the pop of red color!
I love traditional guacamole, but sometimes it is nice to mix things up. If you are in the mood to try something new, jazz up your guacamole and make Strawberry Goat Cheese Guacamole! I know I will be making this recipe all summer long!
