Caviar and Chive Cream Cheese

Caviar and Chive Cream Cheese

 Email

Prep Time: 8 minutes
Cook Time: none
Chill Time: none
Yield: 8 to 10 servings

  • 1 (8-ounce) container whipped cream cheese
  • ½ cup fresh chives, chopped
  • ¼ cup ikura caviar (salmon roe)
  • 30 pita crisps

1. Mix cream cheese and chives until blended. Using an ice cream scooper or the back of a spoon, mold into a smooth, circular mound in the middle of a flat serving platter.
2. Top with caviar.
3. Surround with pita crisps.

Tips:

To create homemade pita crisps, split a pita and cut each half into 8 to 10 triangular wedges. Lay wedges in a single layer on a baking sheet and place in oven at 300° F for about 15 minutes.

To keep one or two lucky guests from snagging all the dip, serve as individual towers- the visual impact that is truly amazing. Place a spoonful of the cream cheese between two crisps, top with another spoonful of cream cheese and a dollop of caviar. Serve 3 per person.

Suggested Wine:

Hagafen 2001 Napa Valley Brut Cuvée Sparkling Wine

What could be better than caviar and sparkling wine? The saltiness of the roe is a perfect contrast to the toasty bubbles of the Brut Cuvée
