This is a perfectly fragrant and beautiful wreath! I use mayonaisse instead of cream cheese. It is easier to spread and add a little needed creamy moisture to this recipe. It is great to crush some rosemary with the mortar and pestle to add to the filling. Crushing the leaves brings out the fragrance and flavor. Almost any veggie can be used for this as long as you omit fresh tomatoes which will make the wreath soggy (or use sun dried tomatoes). I drain and pat dry my veggies after cooking to remove some of the moisture then chop and add seasonings such as the rosemary, smoke salt, and white pepper. You can always use your favorite.
