I thought I'd write about my new favorite salad topping: cream cheese. My wife found it in the supermarket while buying cream cheese for her cheesecake. When we ran out, I tried with some regular spreadable cream cheese, and it didn't work quite as well as the packaged block for salads, but it might have been that the spreadable was "light". It still works, and you should try it even if you can't find the specially packaged "salad cream cheese".
Interestingly, the word for cream cheese in Spanish is queso filadelfia. It's one of those brand names that enjoys being synonymous with its product, like Kleenex or Frisbee.
Cut into small pea-sized cubes and sprinkled on the salad.
Try it. You'll thank me.
