  2. 4 ounces fresh goat cheese, at room temperature
  3. 2 tablespoons heavy cream or whole milk
  4. 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

  7. 2 tablespoons snipped chives
  8. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. In a food processor, puree the avocados with the goat cheese, cream, lemon zest and lemon juice. Transfer to a bowl. Fold in the caviar and chives and season with salt and pepper.
