We’re big fans of dip in my house. Anything I can make that gives my kids some protein and helps get them through until dinner gets my vote. You can also spread this on sandwich wraps or serve it on a bagel. Serve it with sliced cucumbers, jicama, carrots, or with crackers and enjoy!
8 oz cream cheese, softened
2 tbsp mayonnaise or sour cream
2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed
2 tbsp minced shallot
1 tbsp chopped tarragon
1 tsp chopped fresh thyme
1/4 tsp kosher salt
freshly ground pepper
For serving: Sliced Carrots, Jicama, or Cucumbers or Chips
In the bowl of a stand mixer, whip the cream cheese and mayonnaise until it’s smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides of the bowl once. Add the lemon juice and mix on medium speed until combined, scraping down the sides once again. Stir in the shallot, herbs, salt, and pepper with a spatula. Taste, adding more salt and pepper as needed. Keep covered in the fridge for up to 4 days or serve immediately.
