I got this recipe from my favorite bagel shop in New York City. Now I make this every time I'm craving a quick and healthy breakfast. I like to add chopped pitted green olives to the schmear. — Julie Merriman, Seattle, Washington

"I made this last week and my family loved it. It was so fresh and bright. We used it on bagels, English muffins and also used it to dip the extra veggies from the recipe in.

Tip- if you don't want all the extra veggies used in the recipe you can get most of them Already sliced from your grocery stores salad bar."
