Make sure you spread the cream cheese across the platter. It is absolutely wonderful and I had no leftovers!

I wasn't that impressed. I think it needs something? Too plain for me. If you decide to make, be sure to use the brand cocktail sauce.

Add a little chopped fresh cilantro for a festive look and a nice zippy flavor. Very good with low fat cream cheese.

This is a quick and easy dip recipe if you are short on time. The last time I made it, I used wasabi cocktail sauce, and the kick really blended well with the cream cheese. Sometimes I use neufchatel cheese, for a lower fat option.

So good! Who would think such simple flavors work so well together! I used the tiny salad shrimp when I made it and it worked just fine.

Great recipe that I've made for years, except our family uses Chili Sauce instead of the Cocktail. Super easy and super yummy!
