Creamy Tofu + Lemon Herb Dip For a Modern Relish Tray

Modern relish trays have come along way from the simple glass platter your Grandmother served before family dinners however, the concept that you are serving items that tend to be on the lighter side still holds true.

For most trays you will only serve one dip so the flavors should be special but not overpowering. A Creamy Tofu + Lemon Herb Dip is the perfect compliment to a platter filled with organic multicolored carrots, fresh sliced fennel, pickled radishes and a variety of interesting crackers.

I recently co-hosted an Lustrous Entertaining Event {full post link coming soon!} at West Elm and tried out the new recipe for the guests. The response was wonderful – especially to the secret ingredient, tofu! I have to admit, I have never made a dip from tofu but the texture was great – I used firm tofu so I needed to add every bit of the lemon juice, so if you select to use silkened the quantity may differ.

My more than able assistant {of course I pull up a health coach to help… she stole the show! Just kidding Natalia. Loved having you there!} whipped it up in no time flat and even messaged me later to get the recipe to make it for her family! Again positive response and that is coming from a 10 year old. Guests also enjoyed a Raspberry Mocktail Punch along with the Tofu + Lemon Herb Dip, so many great flavors!
