1/4 Cup Cream Cheese
1 3/4 Cup Greek Yogurt
4 tbsps. finely chopped red onions
1 de-seeded finely chopped jalapeno ( more or less according to your preference)
Approximately 1/2 Cup small green seedless grapes- halved
Salt for seasoning
Blend the softened cream cheese and Greek yogurt in a blender or mixer until smooth.
Add the finely chopped jalapeno, finely chopped red onions and halved grapes into the mix.
Season with salt.
The Greek Yogurt replaces the Cream Cheese and/or Sour Cream. The small amount added gives the 'binding' for the dip. One can avoid it entirely and chill the Dip before serving. The heat comes from the jalapenos. The tart-sweet grapes offset the heat of the jalapenos and the onions give the crunch.
Another version: Spicy Cream Cheese and Cumin Dip

For the Want of a Leaf.....
This year, we found the traditional banana leaves to serve the Onam Sadya, without any blemish or cracks from a selection at our local ethnic market.
Thanks to our Malayalee grocer...who had help from the markets in Florida, Latin America, the local Chinese grocery supplier, the long-term-resident, enterprising-Malayalee-backyard-gardener...
We found three perfect top-portion, banana leaves, cut to serving length for this year's Onam Sadya.
