This recipe is good as a dip for vegetables and crackers. It is also good as a filling for wrap sandwiches.

1 tsp. grated lemon zest
1 tsp dried basil or 1 tbl fresh
2 tsps lemon juice
8 ounces light cream cheese
6 ounce can of tuna, drained and broken into small chunks
salt and pepper to taste

I love basil and scallions. I haven't thought them in dip, but sounds great!
