Substitution
Plain chèvre and a dash of black pepper make a great stand-in for the goat cheese with peppercorns.
Do-Ahead
Prepare the spread a few hours ahead. Cover and refrigerate until serving time, then heat in the microwave.
Special Touch
Sprinkle a few extra capers on top of the dip just before serving.
Did You Know?
Capers have a flavor similar to olives. The buds vary in size. For this recipe, purchase capers that are very small, called nonpareil, so the flavor will be better distributed throughout the spread. Look for capers near the pickles and olives in the grocery store.
