In the “good-ole summertime” I love creating recipes that are simple to prepare and will hold up in the heat when we entertain outside. Here’s one of my new favorites Chive Blossom Dip:

Chive Blossom Dip
Easy prepare in two minutes! In a small bowl, combine 5.2 ounce package Boursin Shallot and Chive Cheese with 3 to 4 tablespoons milk. Mix each tablespoon of milk into the cheese and add more milk as needed to make the dip smooth and dip consistency. Put dip in a pretty serving bowl. Garnish with fresh chopped chives and a chive blossom in the middle of the bowl. Serve with Terra Exotic Potato Chips or your favorite kettle cooked potato chips (kettle cooked potato chips are usually heartier and stand up to the humidity in the summer better than other types of potato chips).
Creamy, spreadable cheese flavored with garlic and herbs. Other flavors are now available: shallot and chive, pepper and cranberry and spice. (You can make dip out of these flavors too – just change the garnish to crumbled crisp bacon for the pepper boursin and chopped toasted pecans or walnuts for the cranberry and spice boursin.)

Easy recipes that do not require cooking are especially important to me right now…our kitchen/dining room remodel is about half-way completed. Granite countertops are being installed today. Can’t wait to get back in the kitchen and start cooking again!
