makes about ½ cup


  • ½ cup cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoon fresh dill, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon mayonaisse
  • 1 teaspoon fresh squeezed lemon juice (optional)


Mix together cream cheese, dill, and mayonnaise until well-blended.

Taste the spread to determine if you think it needs a little brightening. Depending on your tastes and the dill you are using you may find the addition of the lemon juice is just the right hit of acidity to marry all the flavors together.
