I LOVE DIP!!! It adds a totally new flavor to what you are eating and I really love that. To me nothing celebrates fall better than food that has cranberry orange in them. This recipe is one of my favorites because you can make it into a dressing and also a spread. Nothing beats having a versatile recipe in your cook book! I have found that using canned mandarin oranges adds more flavor then the fresh or frozen. I really like the orange flavor to come out in this recipe, so if you do not want to use the mandarin oranges add a touch more orange oil. You can also use Honeyville’s seasonal flavor cranberry orange whipped honey too! This is only available until Christmas so try it and stock up on it now!!
10.5 ounces of goat cheese
½- 1 Tbsp cinnamon to your taste
½ cup honey
½ tsp. organic orange oil
1/3 cup cranberries
1/3 cup walnuts
¼-1/3 cup mandarin orange slices
Place the goat cheese, cinnamon, honey and orange oil in a blender and blend for 2 minutes. Then add the cranberries and walnuts and blend for 30 seconds to a minute; depending on how chunky you want it. Put the dip in a bowl that you will be serving in and fold the mandarin orange slices into the cheese mixture. Put in the fridge for 2 hours for it to firm up and serve with your favorite fruits, vegetables, and crackers. Also, tastes good on chips! ENJOY!
