This is a really handy spread to have on hand. In addition to using it as a condiment in a sandwich or wrap, it also works well as a topping for crackers or as part of a charcuterie tray. Plus, this recipe really is as simple as they come. Measure, stir, enjoy.

I really enjoy having fruit included in wraps.  This addition of fruit started in a typical way, adding cranberry sauce to my turkey sandwich during post-Thanksgiving leftover meals.  Seeing an apple and turkey sandwich on a menu ages ago was what inspired me to try other combinations.  Since then I have used a variety of fruits in my wraps: peaches, pears, mango.  In fact, it isn’t unusual for me to skip the meat and make it simply a fruit and cheese wrap.

Living in New Hampshire and near a farm with pick your own blueberries, we have bags and bags of berries in our freezer.  When I need a reminder of the warmth of summer, I defrost some and use them in a recipe. Whether it’s just a batch of pancakes or stirred into some yogurt, they add a tartly sweet bit of sunshine.

This weekend, I decided to make a chicken wrap.  As always, I was looking for a way to add both fruit and cheese to this sandwich.  I spied an open package of goat cheese and inspiration struck.  Combine the goat cheese with blueberries for a simple spread.  To make this spread even smoother I added cream cheese.  The sugar in the recipe is optional.  However, I found that it added a bit of brightness to the flavors.

If you’re like me and the meat is not the focus of the sandwich, I think you’ll find this spread could be used simply as a topping for toast or a bagel.  It also could be interesting served with a variety of crackers.

Want a similar spread but that’s a bit more tangy? Give this Cranberry Goat Cheese Spread.
