The best things in life are cheese. We (Sydney and Brittaney) are huge cheese lovers. It is a staple for both of us, fuelling our outdoor adventures and regularly paired with a whole grain or fruit as a satisfying snack. This dip is a crowd pleaser amongst our family, friend and work circles (yep, it’s one of those repeat recipes that never disappoints at potlucks and holiday gatherings alike).

Fun facts about cheese:

We have good news for those of you who are lactose intolerant! Mozzarella and ripened cheeses such as cheddar, Swiss, parmesan and Brie contain very little lactose.

Did you know you could freeze your cheese? Next time cheddar is on sale, shred it, store it in the freezer, and add it to omelettes, soups, pasta, etc.

Cheese (apart from cream cheese) is a good source of calcium, protein and vitamin B12!
