I made this and after tasting,and made 2 more batches.
We recently had another couple over and I had a cheese tray. It was served over an 8 oz block of cream cheese (how simple is that) with crispy wheat crackers.
We woofed the whole thing down, and I made ANOTHER batch.
The picture is my own, see how pretty it is?
