That person is in my family, too. I think I'd use whipped cream cheese, maybe with some basil finely minced into it.

How about a non-goat fromage blanc? http://www.foodnetwork...

Drain some ricotta in cheesecloth for a few hours to thicken it up. Milder than goat cheese, but still in the neighborhood.

If you can find Israeli feta, it is milder than many other types.
