Great appetizer. Doubled the amout of garlic and used fresh oregano in place of the thyme. DH and I really enjoyed it and will make it again. Made for Veg*n tag #2, Sept 2008.
I thought that this was a tasty, lemony spread. It made for a nice snack. I served it with pita bread. Made for ZWT4.
Terrific cheese spread! I made this one day ahead and brought it to a friends cottage and we all loved it. I served this with Melba Toast and it went together really well for a mid-afternoon snack. Thanks for a great recipe! :)
