This was very good. My choice of nuts was Pecans. I also used a mild flavored goat cheese, tomato & basil. I had this with pita chips, very crunchy, my BH had with Lime flavored tortilla chips. I left out the cilantro, I don't care for it personally. We had this along with Chili during a Georgia football game, a hit! Thanks for posting!!

I bought some goat cheese from Sam's club and was wondering what to do with it when I ran across this recipe. I made it for a gathering and everyone loved it. Honestly, the guests talked about it all night! Definitely a keeper! I used walnuts, but think any of the nuts suggested would work out as well. Great recipe Tish!
