I finally got around to trying Farm Boy's fig and walnut cream cheese dip and have to say, this copycat recipe is pretty darn close to the original! Perfect for when you cannot make it to the grocery store 🙂
Before I start, I want to say I am not affiliated with Farm Boy grocery stores. I am just a customer who really loves their stuff!
My sister took me to Farm Boy when it opened a couple of towns over (probably within the last year or so.) I immediately fell in love! They are so different than our standard grocery stores and what I love most is how delicious (and unique) they are. Many of their products are their own: salad dressings, soups, you name it. I finally got around to trying their fig and walnut cream cheese dip and was floored! We ate the whole container in one night!
I use their salad dressing all the time, but I can easily stock up on that. Since they are not exactly close for me, I try and limit my trips. Sometimes I cannot get my hands on this dip, so that is why I decided to try recreating the recipe at home. Soooo good! And really simple, considering it sounds so fancy 🙂
All ingredients are approximate and with something homemade like this fig and walnut cream cheese dip, you can customize it however you see fit. I would probably add extra sesame seeds and walnuts for fun. Oh! And I finally found fresh figs so that I could actually make this recipe 🙂
Farm Boy Fig and Walnut Cream Cheese Dip Copycat Recipe

Like I said, such a fun grocery store! My sister and I tend to hit up the hot section and devour some stuffed baked potatoes after our shopping trip. No shame! Plus, they pride themselves on organic products, and I know for many that is a big deal.
I"m such a dip fan...sometimes a great dip with crusty bread and wine is just the perfect dinner. Loving fig and walnut cream cheese together...yes, yes!!
They work so well together!

I never would have thought about a fig dip, but we love fig spread on crackers with manchego cheese, so I'm sure we'd love this, too!
Perfectly sweet, without being overboard!

What an amazing store AND an amazing dip. We have this new found love for figs in my house and I would love to try them out in this way. Great dip!
Glad you love figs, Michelle! They are so great! And the store is so awesome!

Pass me a spoon, because I've going in!! That dip looks heavenly 😀
I may be able to share... 🙂
I hardly ever get to eat figs, but it's a treat when I do! This sounds like a delicious dip!
Figs are a nice treat, Sabrina, and I guess they are a treat for us, too, since we can never find them!

This dip looks so amazing and creamy! Any dip with cream cheese is always a winner!
Yes!! It is so weird because I love cream cheese, but not in cheesecake lol. Savoury dips are a-okay!
I love it! What do you serve it with?
