How Will The Lobster Dip Look And Taste Like?

The lobster dip looks mainly white because of the cream cheese and butter. The red of the lobster peeks through here and there. All the flavors of the lobster dip complement each other rather than overpowering it. The horseradish and onion add intense flavors to the dip. The cream cheese and butter subdue them making all the brave flavors blend perfectly. I would suggest you give this dip a night so the flavors get to know each other well. Enjoy it with biscuits or bread the next day.
