Chive Mascarpone Dip with Herbed Pita Chips Recipe

Chive Mascarpone Dip with Herbed Pita Chips Recipe

I have a massive herb garden in the summer, with an abundance of chives. This dip featuring cream cheese, veggies and pita bread works well when you have chives to use up. Make the dip 2-3 days in advance for best flavor. —Sarah C. Vasques, Milford, New Hampshire
