|Creamy Basil Spread/Dip|
In food processor, chop 1 peeled carrot until very fine.
Add: 2-8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened; 4 tsp. dried basil, 1 c. sour cream, 1/4 c. diced red onion (or substitute green onions), 1/4 c. fresh basil.
Process until a nice consistency. Add freshly ground pepper and a dash of salt. Cover and chill.
Especially good with raw veggies and mushrooms, crackers, but I use it most spread on thinly sliced bread cut into triangles. Top each one with a small pansy or viola for tea sandwiches!
For variation, add chopped salad olives and use a sliced olive on top of each sandwich.
