Chive Mascarpone Dip with Herbed Pita Chips

Total Time

Prep: 25 min. Bake: 10 min.


2 cups (48 chips)

I have a massive herb garden in the summer, with an abundance of chives. This cream-cheesy dip helps use them up. Make it a few days in advance for best flavor. —Sarah Vasques, Milford, New Hampshire
