Serve-With
Instead of crackers, assorted raw vegetables such as Belgian endive, cherry tomatoes and snap pea pods.
Success
Because of the richness of the cheeses, the dip may start to separate, and little puddles could appear on the surface. You'll need to stir the dip occasionally, and it will look as good as new.
