From Vegetarian Times, September 2002. This is great served on crackers, wheat or rye bread, pitas, and bagels. It is also good for making a veggie wrap by spreading it on a tortilla, topping with chopped tomatoes, shredded lettuce and sprouts, and rolling it all up. Prepare 24 hours in advance and refrigerate. Serves 6.

We liked this. I made it to go with crackers and fresh veggies. I liked the chopped roasted red peppers instead of pimentos. I could taste the mustard last night when I made it but I couldn't taste it when I spread it on a bagel this morning. It was definately better the next day. Thanks for posting, yum.

I really liked this recipe. It was simple and quick to put together. Others enjoyed it...but I'm not completely sold on the flavor of the thyme. I used the lesser amount of dried thyme and it was still pretty strong. I may leave it out next time. I served mine on stone wheat crackers. Thanks for posting!

I made this with light cream cheese and light cheddar and very much enjoyed it. Used fresh peppers rather than pimientos for a little extra crunch. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
