Spring has sprung and I have been in the garden doing yard clean up and Spring planting. Believe me, gardening is a work out and you work up an appetite. I have a 1.5 acre property with lots of trees and shrubs. I have been picking up sticks, cleaning out garden beds, and cutting back dead ends on shrubs.

Basil Goat Cheese and Strawberry Ritz Crackers

After a long morning in the garden I needed a snack. I love cheese and crackers but was looking for something more flavorful with a fresh taste. Something about being out in the garden made me crave some garden ingredients like basil and strawberries. I love goat cheese but, if it is too bold for you cream cheese works well with this recipe too.

Basil Goat Cheese Spread

The Basil Goat Cheese is really easy to make. You take 2 ounces goat cheese and cream it together with a heaping teaspoon of dried basil and it is ready. Spread the goat cheese mixture onto the RITZ® crackers. Simply slice a handful of strawberries and place on top of the basil goat cheese and enjoy your snack!
