My friend, Linda Griffith, brought a container of this spread for me to try. “I love it and you can buy it at some delis”, she told me. Hmmm….checking the ingredients on the label led me to believe I could clone this really yummy spread, and I did. So here it is and it’s versatile – spread on toast and run under broiler or stir a spoonful into clear chicken broth. Or serve chilled with crackers.
Blend together and let flavors mellow in refrigerator several hours before serving:
1/2 cup mayonnaise or bit more if needed
2 cups shredded Gruyere or Swiss – if you want the real deal, use Gruyere
1-2 tablespoons minced red onion
Bit of chopped parsley – opt.
Tip from Rita’s kitchen:
Gruyere is a high quality, softer cheese, so chill it well before attempting to shred.
