Dill Cheese Spread

From Moosewood Restaurant Kitchen Garden

1 ½ cups grated firm cheese (cheddar, Monterey Jack, Swiss, Jarlsberg, Gouda)
2/3 cup cream cheese or cottage cheese (regular or low fat)
¼ cup or less chopped fresh dill (or other fresh herb)
2 to 3 tablespoons additional seasonings: chopped vegetables, chilies, nuts, garlic, or edible flower blossoms

Allow the grated cheese to soften at room temperature for easier mixing. Use a food processor or mixer to whip the cheeses together until smooth and well blended. Add the remaining ingredients. Makes about 2 ½ cups.
