Delicious Herb Cheese Recipe

Enhance the flavor of dairy products, particularly cheese, by incorporating a variety of herbs and spices. Herbs and spices not only provide taste but also possess therapeutic properties such as antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, antihypertensive, and anti-microbial effects. By supplementing dairy products with these ingredients, we can introduce active substances, as well as elevate their nutritional and medicinal value. Numerous studies have demonstrated the significant inhibitory effect of herb and spice-infused cheeses on various harmful microorganisms.

By adding herbs and spices to cottage or cream cheese, you can create a delightful dip or spread. 


8 ounces of softened cream cheese
2 tablespoons of  fresh herbs


Begin with 8 ounces of softened cream cheese or 1/2 pound of cottage cheese. Add 2 tablespoons of finely minced fresh herbs or 1 teaspoon of dried herbs or spices. Feel free to combine compatible flavors according to your preferences. You can even include a touch of pepper sauce. For a smoother or thinner consistency, incorporate sour cream, yogurt, or mayonnaise. Prepare this mixture several hours or even a day in advance and allow it to refrigerate, allowing the flavors to develop.

For a perfect addition to a party or as a gift, consider making a well-seasoned cheeseball. Start with feta or goat cheese, or opt for good sharp grated cheddar. Combine the cheese with butter, herbs, and spices based on your taste preferences. Shape the mixture into balls using your hands. To make the cheeseball more visually appealing, roll it in finely chopped nuts, finely minced fresh herbs, or crushed seeds. Wrap it in cheesecloth, foil, or waxed paper, and refrigerate it for at least a full day. Prior to serving, bring the cheeseball to room temperature for about an hour and garnish it with fresh herbs.

Seasoned mayonnaise serves a multitude of purposes, including being used as a dip for raw vegetables, a spread for sandwiches, or a dressing for cold seafood or mixed vegetable salads. You can either prepare your favorite blender-style mayonnaise or use a bottled product. Stir in minced fresh herbs, a hint of lemon peel, and any spices that you enjoy. Mix everything well and chill the seasoned mayonnaise before serving.
