Christmas Spread

I was looking for a handful of snacks to bring over to Christmas day at my parent's house. Something we could munch on before dinner and during the game. I made the Sesame-Chile Kettle Corn, the Sweet and Spicy Walnuts, and I found this new herb cheese dip recipe.


Herb Cheese Dip
From allrecipes.com

Herb cheese dip on a Triscuit
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp prepared mustard
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill weed
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup chopped black olives - Greek olives would also be a good alternative
1 1/2 Tbs lemon juice
Sliced pepperoncinis - highly recommended, optional garnish
  • In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese, garlic, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, dill weed, basil, olives, and lemon juice.
  • Transfer to desired mold and chill in the refrigerator at least 2 hours before serving.
I waited until Christmas eve to buy the ingredients and every food store was closed so I had minimal options for what to buy. I had to resort to Walgreens and our pantry. Luckily, we had all of these herb dried because I wasn't able to buy fresh.
