Light Herbed Cheese Spread

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Chris from Kansas

This light cheese spread tastes similar to the expensive, higher-fat versions sold in grocery stores. Serve with raw vegetables or crackers.

Just the right blending of herbs. I used a cream cheese with nonfat yogurt spread instead of the light cream cheese. It is very spreadable and made excellent dippling.
