"This is an easy, delicious spread that adults and kids love. It's a staple at my family's parties, showers, and luncheons. Spread on white sandwich bread or party rolls (or serve with crackers or plain pita chips)."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (15 ounce) can
asparagus tips, drained
1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
finely chopped almonds
finely minced onion
I decided to try this dip just as a prelude to the lasagna. It was really good. My cajun roots are prominent so I had to add a little bit of seasoning, just a pinch of red pepper, made it even better. It's a very mild and interesting flavor. I had it with crackers, Fritos Scoops, and everyone prferred the Scoops for the hint of salt.
Sounded quite bland so I would use equal parts of cream cheese sour cream and mayo and I would also use a package of dry Knorr cream of leek soup and of course the Asparagus omit the onion I made this and I cut out the center of a pumpernickle bread, hollowed it out the bread and and cubed the remains and used the bread as the bowl nice mild dip
This was really good. I had to use minced garlic in place of the onion. Very simple to make and delicious to taste.
I used FF cream cheese, organic almonds and low-fat mayonnaise. I also added 1 tsp. of Trader Joe's 21 Seasoning Salute. Off the charts yummy. I spread a few thin smears on cukes for me and spread it on bread with ham to make sandwiches for the kids. HUGE hit. This is SO a keeper. It really was off the charts yummy. NOTE: I bet this would be good with jarred artichoke hearts, too.
I really like this but it would not be for everybody. It is bland. I added finely chopped red onion and 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder to it and felt this helped it.
Followed the recipe exactly except I couldn't find a can of just asparagus tips but that didn't seem to matter because the recipe was still a hit at my party.
cool everyone loved it even the kids
This was one of the few things I really craved when I was pregnant. It is sooo good! I made it with lots of red onion and fresh, steamed asparagus. I ate it on just about anything - crackers, celery sticks, toasted bagels, baked potatoes. Delicious! Thanks so much, kpaigel!
