  • “Yum!Very garlicky — I recommend using 1 SMALL clove of garlic.I served this (without the bread) as a dip.There were no leftovers.”

  • “Simple, but perfect blend of flavors.I used onion and chive cream cheese and spread the mixture on toasted slices of baguette.Yum!I know that this is an appy, but I served it up for breakfast with some celery stalks and a glass of low sodium V-8 juice.The spread would also be good on bagels.”
