So fresh and light for a slice of bread or even a crisp veggie. Looks great on the plate too!

This is wonderful, Angie. I'll definitely make it.
Would you like to submit it for the game I'm hosting this month on my blog - the theme is zucchini?

MaryMoh 8/6/10 10:33

I've never eaten zucchini raw. It looks very delicious in this spread. I don't think I have seen that fresh cheese here. Maybe I can use other type's of cream cheese.

Kitchen Corner 8/6/10 10:40

Very appetizing starter! It could be my main dish as well :)

Peggy 8/6/10 11:46

Definitely not your ordinary dip! sounds great!

pigpigscorner 8/6/10 12:00

I like the idea of zucchini and cream cheese combo! Looks so yummy!

Finla 8/6/10 13:18

Pari Vasisht 8/6/10 13:19

Hi Angie, such an innovative spread, thanx for sharing.

Honey Bee Sweets 8/6/10 13:22

Yummy! Do you think I can replace the fresh cheese with cream cheese or sour cream? Such a lovely treat to serve as orderve!

Belinda @zomppa 8/6/10 13:47

Ooo - great twist from the traditional artichoke spread...and get your greens to boot.

FOODESSA 8/6/10 13:53

I followed you in from another foodie's blog...and what a lovely surprise.
I enjoy the unique layout you have for inviting us into your culinary world.
Artisan bread will always be number one at my table. Now, add to that your wonderful spread...you've got a winning combination;o)
I'll be following your future posts.
Flavourful wishes, Claudia

Girl Foodie 8/6/10 14:18

This looks delish! Not too far removed from artichoke dip.
I wonder how it would be if you sauteed and cooled the zucchini first...

Biren 8/6/10 14:37

Angie, that cheese spread sounds so good with the zucchini. I think it will also go well with crackers and vege sticks.

Unknown 8/6/10 15:02

Its sure tastes heavenly...

Great spread. Zucchini goes so well with cheese.

Lovely spread! I love all the ingredients used in this spread, and I can feel the crunchiness of the zucchini in the creamy texture of the cheese.

Angie, I hate repeating myself but I do love all your recipes. I tried raw zuchini in a salad, after your post Zuchini Ribbon caper salad and loved it. This is something I will definitely make.

Cook with Madin 8/6/10 22:51

Hi Angie, great recipe and the photos, well done. I saved this in my recipe box. Like what you said, serve this in place of hummus. Thank you for sharing.

Devaki 8/6/10 23:00

Dear Angie - What a great change from the old artichoke and spinach spread. I love how you've taken a concept and reinterpreted in your own unique signature style.

Thanks for all these lovely summer meals :)

Ciao, Devaki @ weavethousandflavors

Claudia 9/6/10 02:09

Angie, I am thinking this would be great with simple fromage blanc. Something new to do with zucchni! Yay!

Mary Bergfeld 9/6/10 02:34

As always, Angie, your pics are so captivating! Nice cheese spread you have out there!

Katie@Cozydelicious 9/6/10 19:38

I have so much zucchini from my CSA share (and I can't make any more zucchini bread) so this is fantastic. Yum!

Rosa's Yummy Yums 9/6/10 19:58

Awesome! I'd love to to have a slice of artisan bread with that scrumptious spread!



Daily Freebies 9/6/10 20:52

This looks amazing!! Nice work :)

arthi 9/6/10 22:15

looks so delicious !! nice clicks..

shahana 9/6/10 22:20

Sounds new.But looks so delicious!

Lazaro Cooks 10/6/10 01:51

The zucchini spread looks great. By the way...soyrizo is a soy product flavor with spices similar to Spanish chorizo.

A Canadian Foodie 10/6/10 05:23

What a novel idea for a dip, and the texture would be lovely. I planted zucchini this season, so I can try it out in a few months! Or sooner, if I buy some... I planted them mainly for their flowers as we cannot buy them anywhere here... but, now, I have another idea!

theUngourmet 10/6/10 06:59

What an awesome way to use zucchini! I would never have thought of this. Brilliant!

Nirvana 10/6/10 07:09

Congratulations on the Foodbuzz Top 9! This looks like a really easy, yet delicious dip to make. Nirvana

trissa 10/6/10 13:05

Probably the most unique spread I've seen before. I'm pretty sure it tastes really delicious as well.

Linn @ Swedish Home Cooking 10/6/10 18:00

That is really interesting! I love the combination of the cheese and zuccini. Sounds like a lovely spread!

CheeseGoddess 10/6/10 19:55

Oh Angie! What kind of cheese can I use as a substitute. I haven't seen that brand in the supermarket here in the States. Would a goat cheese work in this recipe?

Angie's Recipes 10/6/10 20:34

CheeseGoddess: Cream cheese or curd cheese will work too. Fresh goat cheese sounds a brilliant idea to make the spread too.
Thank you, guys, for dropping by and the compliments. I truly appreciate them.

Nancy 11/6/10 01:31

Sounds healthy, looks delicious and 5 star rating all the way! What a great recipe, I love it and am saving it to try soon.
