I’m always on the lookout for quick and easy recipes for when I entertain- something healthy and that utilizes much of what I already have on hand is best because sometimes you need to pull something together for surprise guests, and it’s always good to use what you’ve already got on hand, too.

Cream Cheese Dip with Nuts & Honey. Yogurt cheese (labne) can be a good substitute for the cream cheese, but also mascarpone cheese or creme fraiche will be tasty, too.

It’s so easy to pull together. Simply chop any type of nuts you have on hand. I like almonds, pistachios and walnuts (mixed together they’re lovely) or just one or two of them.

Simply line a pretty dish with a heaping, generous amount of your choice of cheese, add the nuts, then drizzle a good amount of honey on top. Serve with anything strong enough that can scoop up the ingredients of this dish: rustic bread, hearty grain crackers, or something similar. It also goes well with some fruit on the side like figs, grapes, or cherries. Your guests will love and appreciate something so hearty, rustic, homemade, and tasty.
