I've made this dip 4 times now for dinner parties. Absolute party pleaser! I've even made it without almonds when I didn't have the time to get some and it's still great. A couple of times I used a flavoured cream cheese (e.g. garlic and herbs). But to be honest it doesn't need it. The basic recipe is brilliant as is, which is great because I normally edit recipes to my taste in someway to compensate for a lack of flavour, but not this one. May try green onions next time as someone else suggested though.
