Home » Recipes » Goat Cheese Spread with Hearts of Palm and Sweet Corn
1 ear yellow corn, husked
1 (6-ounce) container goat cheese crumbles
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped, plus more for garnish
1 (14.1-ounce) can whole hearts of palm, drained and finely chopped
Carefully remove corn kernels from the cob and set aside in a small bowl. Working over a large bowl, use the dull edge of a table knife to scrape down the length of the cob on all sides to remove as much "milk" as possible; discard cob. To the large bowl, add cheese and lemon zest and juice and mash with a fork until creamy and well combined. Stir in reserved corn kernels, parsley and hearts of palm. Garnish with more parsley and serve. Or, cover and chill before serving.
