    Very tasty and even better the next day. I added some chopped radishes to mine. Goes well with both Vegetables and crackers. instead of adding celery to the cheese. I spread the cheese mixture onto some celery sticks. I did add some chopped celery tops to the cheese mixture. VFE for Taste of Home

    I love this cream cheese spread and plan to make it often. Made exactly as directed. Had it with fresh veggies, crackers and even spread it on bagels in the morning. Very versatile and very delicious! No need to buy vegetable cream cheese anymore, since now I plan to make this spread on a regular basis! It tastes even better the next day!

    This is very easy to make and really good. As suggested by another reviewer, I used red onions and the lower fat cream cheese. Everyone loved it and I'll definitely make again.

    I found this recipe 2 years ago and have been taking this dip to family get-togethers since then. I use 1/3 less fat cream cheese and substitute red onion to add anothercolor.
