A super easy tuna dip recipe with fresh goat cheese. It’s ready in less than 5 minutes.
You won’t want to miss this yummy tuna appetizer. This tuna dip with goat cheese can be served either with vegetable sticks (carrots, cucumber, bell peppers...), cheery tomatoes for a super healthy option or with gluten free crackers or tortilla chips. You can also use it as a spread on a (gluten free) toast.
It's quick, tasty and the perfect game night appetizer if you are a sports fan. But you don't have to wait for the superbowl to make this. I make this each time I host an "apperitif dinatoire" (French for "dinner with appetizers") and I never have any leftovers!
About the cheese for this tuna dip
To make this tuna dip, you should use fresh goat cheese. Fresh goat cheese is pretty close to regular cream cheese. It has a creamy texture (as you can see on the video). Its taste is very subtle, it doesn't have a strong goat taste, unlike dry goat cheese. Of course, if you are not cow dairy intolerant (unlike me) you can use regular cream cheese.
Ingredients for this tuna dip
- canned tuna in water / brine
- fresh goat cheese (see above for more explanations)
- lemon juice : to give a nice kick to this tuna dip
- optional : you can add spring onions if you feel like it
Mix everything well, and there you have, a super simple canned tuna dip that is absolutely amazing.
