Truffled Goat Cheese Spread
1 (9-ounce) log goat cheese, at room temperature
2 to 3 teaspoons truffle oil, or to taste
4 radishes, trimmed and grated
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
Place the cheese, oil, radishes and chives in a small mixing bowl and mash together with a fork to combine.
Transfer to a serving bowl and serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for up to 1 week. If refrigerated, let soften a bit before serving, if desired.

Garnish with more scallions or radish slices, if desired.
Serve with cucumber rounds, slices of celery or triangles of thinly sliced pumpernickel.
Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
