It never ceases to amaze me what can be done with cream cheese. It’s truly one of the most versatile foods on the market. Almost every dip/spread calls for it, and if you add a little mayo and some imagination, you can whip up a delightful spread in no time. The recipe below is the easiest one for me, but I’m always adjusting it on a whim. Give it try with some of your favorite ingredients!
Tomato Cucumber Spread
You will need:
Large mixing bowl
1 large cucumber, peeled and diced
1 large tomato
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
1 pkg cream cheese ( 8oz), softened
2-3 Tbsp. mayonnaise ( I use Hellmann’s )
dash Worchestershire or Tabasco
Mix cream cheese and mayo together until well blended. Add the remaining ingredients, mix well and refrigerate until ready to use. Serve on your favorite bread, snacker or crisps and enjoy!
Tip : I often toss in green or black olives, use chopped chives instead of onions, add finely chopped celery and bit of seasoning salt and garlic. Experiment!
