Goat Cheese Spread with Herb Oil

Adapted from Giada's book. This makes a killer dip for parties or potlucks, and it is amazingly easy!

Chop herbs in a food processor:
1/4 C parsley
1/4 C mint
1/4 C basil
1/4 tea salt
(I didn't have any basil but it still was great)

Turn on food processor and add 1/4 C olive oil in a stream to emulsify. Then pour out herb oil into a container.

Stick in food processor and whir until creamy:
8 0z goat cheese (Trader Joe's has some good prices)
1/4 C cream or half and half

Spread the goat cheese on a serving plate, then drizzle herb oil over the top. You can add sliced tomatoes or toasted walnut pieces for garnish.
