Herbed Goat Cheese Dip with Asparagus Spears

A tangy goat cheese dip contrasts beautifully with the unique, almost grassy, taste of steamed spears of asparagus. This makes a simple but elegant appetizer for a party.

5.5 ounce package goat cheese
2 tablespoons chopped basil
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 tablespoons chopped chives
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ teaspoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons Greek yogurt or sour cream
Steamed asparagus spears

Mix all ingredients in bowl. Serve with steamed asparagus. I steamed the stalks in a steamer pan set over boiling water. The thickness of the stalks will affect steaming time. If you are lucky to find super thin spears, it may only take a minute or two until it is tender.
