Wine and cheese seems to be a staple among my group of friends during parties. It’s hard to go wrong and requires little to no preparation in advance.
Party after party though, I like to switch things up and surprise the guests. I also use this opportunity to sneak it healthier version of traditional favorites. However, great tasting slimmed down versions of cheese appetizers are hard to find. I just stumbled on this protein packed dip recipe from The Laughing Cow that I had to share with you. Double, triple or quadruple it for a crowd.
Cheesy Polk-Dot Dip (serves 2)
- 2 whole Wedges Of The Laughing Cow® Light French Onion Cheese
- ¼ teaspoons Honey
- ¼ cups Fully Cooked Black Beluga Lentils
- 1 Tablespoon Roasted Red Pepper, Diced Small
- 1 teaspoon Fresh Parsley, Chopped
- Kosher Salt And Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Combine cheese and honey in a small mixing bowl.
Fold in lentils (do not mash!), roasted red pepper & parsley.
Season with salt & pepper.
Use as a dip with your favorite vegetables or spread on crackers.
