1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1. To prepare dip, combine yogurt and goat cheese in a food processor; process until smooth. Add leek and artichoke; process until finely chopped, scraping sides. Add pecorino Romano, juice, pepper, and dash of salt; pulse until blended. Cover and chill 2 hours. Garnish with chives, if desired.
