One of my favorite meals is a sesame ginger salad (I’ll get the recipe up here sometime). It has a unique twist, is refreshing, and makes my taste buds extremely happy.
This dip is a play on that salad. A cream cheese base layered with some tasty toppings all pulled together with a dressing that will make you want to come back for more.
Serve with sesame chips and don’t forget you can adjust the toppings to fit your taste and even the ingredients in the dressing. (If you don’t have hoisin and don’t feel like buying a bottle, just leave it out. I think you’ll still enjoy the finished result.)
This post is part of a series. Don’t forget to find all the recipes for layer dips with an international flair here.
- 1½ T. vinegar
- 1½ T. soy sauce
- 1 T. olive oil
- 2 t. sesame oil
- 1 t. hoisin
- ¼ t. finely minced ginger
- ⅛ t. finely minced garlic
- 1/16 sambal, optional (or to taste)
- 8 ounces cream cheese (at room temperature)
- 1 T. milk
- ⅓-1/2 cup finely chopped or shredded chicken
- 1 T. torn cilantro leaves
- 3 T. grated carrots
- 1 T. finely chopped celery (optional)
- 1 -2 T. thinly sliced green onions
- 1-2 T. sliced almonds
- Place all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and mix with a fork.
- Combine the cream cheese and milk and cream and stir until smooth. Spread on the bottom of a glass platter or dinner plate.
- Layer the chicken on top of the cream cheese and drizzle with a little over half of the dressing.
- Next layer the carrots and then finish by sprinkling on the remaining ingredients. Adjust topping ingredients amounts according to the size of your plate.
- Finish by drizzling with the remaining dressing.

This sounds yummy! For us gluten-free folks, I could use rice crackers or cucumber slices. I’m pinning this to my First Communion board as I get ready for our FC party in May.

Hi Deanna! I’m stopping in from Let’s Get Real today. Looks like you have another hit. This dip looks fantastic. I don’t know that it will go with my menu for Sunday so guess what that means……………..need to throw another party soon. I shared it on FB for everyone to see.
Thanks so much! Hey, the more parties the better! I really think making all of them would make a fun girls night. 🙂
Can’t wait to see what you have in-store for us next week. You make me hungry every Friday #WWDParty

A dip like this is great because it is so easy to customize. Thanks for joining the WWDParty!

This dip sounds yummy! Have you tried it with veggies chips? Thanks for sharing and for linking up with us at the Weekend Wind-Down Party, hope to see you again next weekend! God Bless!
I haven’t tried it when veggie chips, but that sounds really good! (I might have even some of it plain, so I think it would be good no matter what it was on. 🙂 ) You’ll have to let me know what you serve it with if you ever try it!
This sounds and looks amazing. I must make this soon! Thanks for sharing at The Weekend Retreat, hope to see back on Thursday.
