first tried this when my mother was hosting a dinner party. She had asked me to spread it on party rye bread slices for her. Of course, I had to try it and it was delicious!! Light and refreshing and the party guests all woofed it down and many asked for the recipe. This is very easy to make. My kids like it on Ritz or Triscuit crackers.
