Cranberry-Pecan Goat Cheese Appetizer Recipe

This super easy no-cook Cranberry Goat Cheese Appetizer is delicious, and it comes together in just 15 minutes. For a larger appetizer, use an 8-oz. goat cheese log, one-and-a-half tablespoons finely chopped rosemary, and 1/3 cup each pecans and dried cranberries.

Any pita chips or Crostini from the grocery store will be just fine for this recipe.
