Chive dip is perfect with bread sticks or your favourite vegetables.

Remember to wash your hands thoroughly!

Serves: 2


  • 200g tub cream cheese
  • 2 ripe plum tomatoes
  • A handful fresh chives
  • 2 teaspoons mayonnaise

You will also need:

  • An apron
  • A chopping board
  • A sharp knife (to use with an adult)
  • A plastic bowl
  • A plastic lemon squeezer
  • A wooden spoon
  • A teaspoon
  • A pair of children's scissors


  1. Spoon the cream cheese into the bowl.
  2. Pick and wash the chives. Using a pair of scissors snip them into small pieces into the bowl.
  3. Cut each tomato in half with a sharp knife. (Please ask for adult help.)
  4. Using the lemon squeezer squash all the juice out of the tomatoes. Pour the juice into the bowl.
  5. Then tear the tomato skin into small pieces and add to the bowl.
  6. Add 2 teaspoons mayonnaise.
  7. Now use all your energy to beat all the ingredients together using a wooden spoon.
  8. Put the dip in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.
Then you can serve your dip with bread sticks, warm pitta bread, carrot batons or your favourite vegetables. Why not have a go at growing your own Chives? They are so easy to grow and you can keep snipping them as they grow back. Parents – If you try this recipe with your child, I’d love to hear from you.

  1. I love recipes that littles can make. Unfortunately, one of my daughters has a texture aversion and doesn’t do dips. (I know. I know.) Thanks for linking with #TwinklyTuesday!

  2. Well I am going to serve this at our next get together! I love dips and the items that get dipped in them 😀 I love that you have “WASHING HANDS” as the first thing to do. My minis know that I won’t let them in the kitchen without first washing their hands. Thanks so much for linking up with #foodpornthursdays!

  3. Another great easy recipe, shall remember this one, we haven’t had bread sticks for snack for ages may have to buy some and make this up too!

    Thanks for linking up to #ToddlerApprovedTuesday

  4. My son loves scissor work, and I often let him help by snipping up the spring onions if we are eating those. This recipe looks yummy and one he can help with all the way through. Lovely, thanks!!
