People will ask for this recipe
This was a big hit at Easter with both young and old. Several people asked for this recipe. It was super easy to make. I made it a couple of days ahead so that I didn’t have any last-minute prep work to do on it.
So nice, because I just took it out of the fridge and let it soften to room temperature before serving.
Serve it with some crackers and fruit
I served the spread with water crackers and gluten-free rice crackers. It would also be delicious served on apple wedges with a drizzle of honey. Or, take a little and mound it inside an endive spear and top with a toasted walnut half. Fancy! I think it would also be great for a sandwich spread, maybe with a fresh tomato slice and a little fresh basil. mmmmm.
I’ll definitely make this one again!
