This is not your average cream cheese spread; this is something special indeed! I used slightly less then 1/4 cup of each herb and an extra garlic clove, and it was perfect. I tasted it before adding the lemon juice and I have to say that the lemon really brightened the flavor. I used kalamata olives and was glad that I didn’t use canned black olives. This spread will become one of our staples when we have an all appetizer gathering. Finding this recipe felt a little like winning the lottery! Thanks!

I did not care for this recipe. Pungent and the lemon juice, just too much acidity. Will not make again.

OMG! I made this for my boyfriends Art Gallery reception and people were begging me for this recipe! Very tasty...The only thing I changed was I used lite Cream cheese and I rosted some garlic cloves threw those in rather then minced garlic. Thank you for an awesome recipe.

I doubled this recipe for a New Year's party. Using 4 Tbsp. of lemon juice was a big mistake! Too lemon-y. Ugh. But okay on a Wheat Thin. I can't comment on the original recipe, but I will NOT be using that much juice again (only 1 Tbsp. for the normal serving size). Other than that, everyone seemed to enjoy the cheese ball. I would make this again. I also think it's easy to adjust by adding some different herbs. Overall, it's a keeper.

This is really good-let this sit in the fridge a while before serving so the flavors can blend properly.

Great flsvour.... I used 1 large clove of garlic and 1 tsp lemon & dill seasoning and being the winter time I used all dry ingredients 1 tsp of each and it was absolutely wonderful. I will definately make this again and in the summer I will try fresh herbs... thanks for the good recipe.

Pretty good stuff. I don't like olives so left that out. I made only part of the recipe just for me to try it out, used on Club crackers. This is very easy to make, which is a real plus, especially if making for a gathering to keep the work load down. I do have to add, though, that trying to put it in a mold seemed like a terrible idea because it's just too sticky. Won't be trying that again... just make a ball or something.

I couldn't understand what I was doing wrong with this when the softened cream cheese was so difficult to combine with the other ingredients. So, I added a little milk and beat it with an electric mixer. That was a bad idea. As it sits in the fridge it somehow comes together and softens. Our friends loved the flavor, but I thought it was too runny, so next time I'll stick to the original recipe. I think I might try whipped cream creese too.
