  • “This is so good, thanks so much for sharing Derf.I love the addition of lime rind to the dip. I had to sube cream cheese and sour cream in place of neufshatel cheese and plain yogurt and used a combination of mace and nutmeg.This is a really wonderful dip, it was quick and easy to make, rich, creamy, tart, sweet and tangy. I served it with Red Anjou Pears, Ida red apples and banana chunks, this made a delicious lunch, but could easily double for dessert.”
