Basil and Walnut Dip

  • 8 oz (225 g) low-fat or fat-free cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbs (30 ml) grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tbs (15 ml) red wine or balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) prepared horseradish
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) chopped walnuts
  • Combine all ingredients except the walnuts in a food processor and process until smooth.
  • Stir in the walnuts.

Even though I am calling this preparation a dip, you can also spread it on toast or crackers, or add a dollop to hot or cold soup.
