Lighter Finger Food Idea For New Years

Wine and cheese seems to be a staple among my group of friends during parties.  It’s hard to go wrong and requires little to no preparation in advance.  

Party after party though, I like to switch things up and surprise the guests.  I also use this opportunity to sneak it healthier version of traditional favorites.  However, great tasting slimmed down versions of cheese appetizers are hard to find.  I just stumbled on this protein packed dip recipe from The Laughing Cow that I had to share with you.  Double, triple or quadruple it for a crowd.

Cheesy Polk-Dot Dip  (serves 2)


  • 2 whole Wedges Of The Laughing Cow® Light French Onion Cheese
  • ¼ teaspoons Honey
  • ¼ cups Fully Cooked Black Beluga Lentils
  • 1 Tablespoon Roasted Red Pepper, Diced Small
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Parsley, Chopped
  • Kosher Salt And Freshly Ground Black Pepper


Combine cheese and honey in a small mixing bowl.
Fold in lentils (do not mash!), roasted red pepper & parsley.
Season with salt & pepper.
Use as a dip with your favorite vegetables or spread on crackers.
